Poetic Asides Prompt: Challenge

Writers Challenge

Let them scratch their at heads at you,

wondering why you dangle a carrot

in front of your own nose, driven,

to write-- for what? they don’t know.

Why would you sit at a computer

when you could be planting a garden,

attending community meetings or

any number of important things?

Don’t pay them any mind, you know

the  magic of making tangible

 the intangible, hearing children giggle

or watching tears when answers appear.

So dangle the carrot, dream your dreams,

and do whatever it takes to motivate you

for you are a writer and if you didn’t write

 the world would miss something beautiful.
