My Poem “Open to interpretation”

When a writer writes something,
that is just the beginning...
after a writer shares what they have written
and takes it beyond the limits
of their own eyes only,
that is when things truly get exciting...
when a writer first gets an idea
they never truly know
what it will ultimately come to be...
when a writer uses their gift
and naturally infuses a part of themselves
into whatever they have written or are writing
they always leave something
that they may not have planned
for their readers to read.

When a writer let's there words go
they can have no idea by whom, when,
nor where their art will be enjoyed -
and there is no knowing why, nor how,
their words will touch a reader
and inspire their dreams
as they lie asleep in bed...
when a writer first puts pen to paper,
or finger to key, they must resist
any and every thought that might occur to them
in which they might attempt to cross out,
erase, or delete something of them
that they felt had to be said.

When a writer creates something
of their own heart, mind, soul, and imagination
there is always an exchange of energy
that takes place that can cross
time and distance instantly...
even if the first intention of a writer
after a while becomes like that of a whisper,
the first spark of inspiration
that brought an idea to life
will always be there to be
felt, read, heard, seen,
and like the world of a dream
open to interpretation.
