How you manage to produce such beautiful works of art each and every day is something I will always admire, and not fully understand how it is possible!

Your Poems are always incredible, thank you for your hard work and dedication!

Pat’s Response

I do not understand how it happens either. Early each morning I sit with a pad and pen and the intention of writing at least six poems so that I can post every four hours. Then, they come. Truly they must be from Source for they come quickly with very little editing needed. I do not even remember them afterwards. The poems come for as long as I am willing to sit and write them. I had 20 one day when I was just trying to see how long they would keep coming. Sometimes poems come with a theme I have been thinking about, but often they are about subjects that are common to us all and that I have not considered. I do not understand the process but perhaps we have the ability to tap into some creative force. Maybe all creative efforts of ours is manifested like this in someway. I see this kind of creativity expressed in other media so I am not sure. I once asked, “why poetry?” and the thought arrived: “because you do not like poetry and this way you will not think it is you.” guess Source knows my big ego. lol. I believe that we all can manifest like this. Have you tried? I know the discipline of sitting at a certain time each day without fail with a firm intention, helps. Let me know if you try…it need not be poetry but any kind of creative process you enjoy. hugs, pat

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your process with us!

    I actually haven’t tried to sit down at the same exact time each day and produce a poem but that is an awesome idea! I am going to try that starting tomorrow!

    After I do this for about a month or so I will let you know how it’s going.

    6 Poems a day? I feel so selfish freaking out about having to do 1 a day haha!

    The day you did 20 must of been a very great moment for you!

    Thanks again for sharing this with us!
