While waiting for a speaker to take his position at a local writers conference, I had time to scribble a few lines on a notepad.

Towers of intellect surround me

As creativity flows through the air.

A shadow of apprehension baits me

While turbulent eyes start to stare.

O guarded passion do not fail

The muse has taken material form.

Strap on my courage and hit sail

For papered words have gathered in swarm.

Open my opportunity now

And let the words transcend.

Floating inward to those who allow,

Meeting whatever end.
