How do I resist the word, stay?
Turn back on a call to remain,
I weighed it, there seems to be gain
But will it suffice my day’s pay?
Surely, there’s more to life, today
Digging, I searched beyond the seen
Moved fast across places I’ve been!
It’s not just the word, but desire
That keeps me burning this fire!
…and fruits of obedience glean
As if he senses my weariness in maintaining my routine, Ronovan says STAY, that’s the topic for this week’s Decima Challenge

Stuck in the process of crafting a line
as I chased to hold a drifting mind,
Slippery as an eel, the thoughts leave.
Up, down and sighs in ripples heave.
From viewing gorgeous almond-shaped eyes
to smiling at sweet thought-out lines.
Wishing brown chubby arms wrapped
me in warm hugs like King-Earl's raps!
I'm caught between make-believe and reality,
trying to ensure a sense of indemnity.
Back to pick up from where I stopped.
Perhaps, there are other ways to cope.
A line today...three more tomorrow.
"I'm fine", I say, "I feel no more 'sorrow'!"
Just an emptiness that never gets filled,
Like a space, a field, constantly filled.
We throw in bakes, cream, junk and films,
seeking change but chances are slim.
And I'm back to that wide-eyed beam,
which hurries, fading, like a sweet dream!

Colleen wants to know what inspires me. Too bad that cannot be covered in a page or two as some are intangible and can’t be described, painted or explained. I’ve tried to capture some of my inspirational moments, smiling as I remember each. This is for you Colleen, one of my inspiration source. https://silverthreading.com/2016/06/01/wqwwc-writers-quote-wednesday-writing-challenge-inspiration/
With the fluttering of wings
The words in my heart sings
Dancing to tunes, not phone rings
That take shapes on paper and blinks
Beyond heavy chains and metal blings
With the smile of a child
My creative thoughts run wild
Baring fantasies that won’t hide
As through the winds you glide
From the Word in the Word
To the strength of two-edged swords
Juices drip and flood the chords
Rhymes grip the unwritten buds
Life, death, loss, gain
Strife, birth, cost, rain
Wife, breath, frost, grain
Knife, health, bust, plain
I easily exhale and relate
That which causes me no debate
Inspirations do not deserve to wait
Let’s rock, roll and continue to create.

Have a love relationship with your thoughts, ideas, poems, articles etc. So that whenever you find yourself in a rut, there will be someone on the inside willing to open the door, help you up to get inspired again. It is all within YOU!
What’s the key to unlocking the ‘unseen, unknown’ you?
