Accidental Poet

So, You Want To Be A Poet

Before becoming a poet

You had no intention

For composing words

Of training that attention


And then one day

A voice you heard

Your inner Muse

With a descriptive word


You knew not the source

But the call you couldn’t resist

To follow instructions

Your Muse inside insists


There in your heart

Edit and tweak it

As the idea evolves

You can even speak it


And now it’s yours

A poem you’ve written

With the help of your Muse

Of poetry you’ve been smitten
