“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”  —Leonard Cohen

They ask what my inspiration is 
I say,
a falling leaf 
a withered rose
a shape in the clouds
a long-lost song on the radio
or a sunset
I long to see

They ask what drives my magical quill
I say,
A lover’s secret desire
a mind brimming with emotions
or sometimes my heart
set on fire
They asked who is your muse
I say,
a giggling baby
a dancing diva or 
an enchantress 
or sometimes the
daily grind of my mundane life
makes me put my poetry into 
a beautiful use
They ask what keeps you going
I say,
my poetry is my religion
and I worship no one 
my words
which keeps the elixir
of life within my veins
I blog at Megha’s World
