Creative Inspiration: Ron Koertge

In keeping with Monday's creativity exercise, here's a poem by Ron Koertge with guidelines, Do You Have Any Advice for Those of Us Just Starting Out?

The poem is #7 in Poetry 180. If you ever need inspiration, that's the place to go. You can always trust Billy Collins.

And you have to love a man who believes every day should begin with a poem.

Okay, I must have really needed that, because it made me cry.

Thank you!

I love that poem. Being creative should be all about living, being yourself, having fun.

I'm glad you both liked it! And, Lezlie, I haven't found a way yet to let people know other comments have been posted after they post. I know it's easy to do in Wordpress, so there must be some way to do it in Blogger ... I'll keep looking!
