Whence Comes A Poem?

Where do poems come from?
No less from the heart and mind,

they room so like transients
and soon seeps down pens' points,
lie as White Majas on papers,

but heart and mind only react
to stimuli, whence it they act,

stimulus can well be love,
hatred, jealousy, enmity,
everything found all around us,

it can be a shooting star,
an exploding space capsule,
the destruction by a storm,

the ravages of Father Time,
the tantrums of Mother Nature,
environment's degradation,

it includes, no less, ourselves,
poets and writers in a site,
I say without trepidation,

oft a poet and some he writes
strongly moves my heart and mind
and find myself pushing a pen.
