Poems: Songs From the Raven’s Nest

The Soul’s Release Valve

After I swore off writing any more poetry, I got inspired to write something, and a poem popped out. Once I realized that what I had written was actually a poem, I end up writing a haiku about the whole ordeal. So now I have two poems and a blog that has been begging for a little more soul.

I am not planning on having a huge collection of poetry here. If any poems come to me, then they will probably end up here. I do need an outlet for anything creative that does come to me. I’ll leave my own personal notes on some of these, but I want to leave most of them for you, the reader, to interpret. So without any ado at all, welcome to…

Songs From the Raven’s Nest

Fire Of The Soul

If it starts as a hobby,
you’ll eventually grow weary and the flame will fizzle.

If it starts as a job,
you’ll eventually despise the work and drench the flame.

But, if it starts as a passion,
that fire will always burn in your soul.

A flaming torch

Keep the flame in your soul

The Ironic Poet – A Haiku

I said I wouldn’t
do this but sometimes the soul
needs to have its way

So how did I end up writing a haiku? Yeah, the first two and a half lines suddenly hit me when I realized that I had inadvertently written and posted a poem on Twitter the day before. Accidental poem inspires another accidental poem.
