Status: In Progress  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Contently Deranged Travelers

A journey into each others minds.

We are the contently deranged travelers

imagination is our station

wherever we go

our words will flow

until we've reached our destination.

 

We travel light

through day and night

seeking inspiration

endlessly we journey

in a world of trepidation.

 

Words are our foremost power

even in the darkest hour

our saviour is our bond

and our minds the magic wand.

 

We don't believe in hocus pocus

the journey's end is our main focus

until the final paragraph

whilst those defeated

madly laugh !

 

Mr. Watson.

A wonderfully written anthem, sir! I like how you worked in a couple of different Houses.

Love this, Mr. W. I think it perfectly describes the House it was posted to as well as some others. :)

We all feed off each other Hanorbi. Inspiration isn't hard to find on Booksie. We all know little of each other, only what we write, it does not matter what gender we are. Creativity has no rules, young and old all sitting at the same table. Thats nice.

I am not a fan of poetry - mainly because I am useless at it - but I like this one and the story it tells. ~ Joe

A wonderful look at the journey of imagination and a writers path. It really made me smile and was a great trip in itself! Thanks for sharing, ZB.
