~A Moment of Absolute~

Write your destiny
Originally uploaded by

"When I have no reason to write,
I invent a reason to write and
When I'm out of reasons,
I write without a reason.
I keep writing for the sake of writing"

It begins,
Writing for a reason
I scatter all the reasons
Leaves scattering
With a touch of wind
Scattered in all direction
My reasons are descending
Yet, my writing has no end
I keep on scripting
Without a reason
Absolute writing
Soul purification

Some of the few lessons that I have learned from life, this poem is inspired by Anna Piutti who gracefully accepted my invitation to be interviewed in LIP. Anna had taken me back to Italy but know I'm touring through Anna's poetry http://livinginpoetry.blogspot.com/2008/01/anna-piutti-poetry-without-borders.html

No matter what, writing for writing sakes, makes sense. Not that this comment does. :)

And like a snap of the fingers, you found a wonderful topic filled with inspiration and wise teaching.

As I was just telling someone else, communication is the heart everything we do. Let the heart fly, and the meanings, topics and ideas will follow.

this has a circular feel to it as if the 'music' of the words revolve around each other with reason and absolute being the central themes. lovely to read.

Why is it we write
reason is over-rated
connection is why

Hi Nasra...I smiled when I read your words because you write what I often thought about. I wish I could be as disciplined as you are. Its tough to keep on writing and finding something meaningful that seems to be worth recording. But you certainly put things in perspective for me. Sometimes the act of persisting in writing is as important as what you write.
Thank you.

Well put and true to my experience too. I think it's probably generally best to lose any reasons for writing that we may start out with, or it works against getting lost in the writing process.

i do consider irrational thinking ... being illogical and not looking into reasons ... sometimes i have the need to feel.

soul purification--it's true! that's perhaps the best reason for keeping a diary (i.e. talking to yourself on paper). ^_^

I was gone for a bit of time, but I had to recharge my own creative batteries. Last year was the most creative year I have lived yet, and I wrote as much poetry then as I did during my entire life before it. I did good! But I needed a rest. But now I'm back. And what reason more do we need to write than writing itself? As I told a friend (princess pointful) last night, "we do not create the inspiration, inspiration is what drives us, we onbly direct it and focus it. The words come to us and we oblige them by writing them down, honing them to a point and perfecting the vision thatr we see before us."

She wrote a beautiful post after that! I was proud!

Glad to see you are still creating. I can't wait to see where inspiration takes you next.

Take care, and it's been good catching up with you.
