what poetry means to me

ripples on the shore
arriving from place unknown
i am bound to share

I like that - arriving from place unknown.

Sometimes I wonder where my words come from but mostly I don't really know.

Really pretty. Love the way this poem hints at the journey, while leaving it mysterious.

Well done. Inspired. I suppose we really don't know where the words come; it is enough that they do and we receive them.

It is wonderful how a few words can express so much about where poetry comes from. Love the picture, too!

The reference to the unknown origin of thought is expressed so beautifully, the implicit reference to the wind through "ripples"...perfect...unseen the wind delivers so much.. You too, like the wind are unseen yet offer so much...we are so fortunate that you feel the necessity of writing your thoughts and observations down.
