Secondary School Poems

Mister B’s a stealthy shadow -

    An impression or a thought;

He’ll spark your creativity

     If he knows it’s truly sought.


He’s that inner visualization

    That will make your spirits lift

And you’ll never need appointments

      For his heedfulness is swift.


He’s your gateway to potential:

    If you seek him you will find

Inspiration lies awaiting

      In a recess of your mind.


He can fire imagination

     In your head and in your heart:

And stir up creativity

     In literature and art.


All dancers, too, are influenced

      And musicians truly blessed.

Who rouses their aesthetic minds?

      Oh, surely you'll have guessed!


Mister B’s a stealthy shadow,

     But unlock his covert tower.

Then as you give him space to move

      You’ll feel his magic power.

Skype Visits Reflective Poems Mr B - Heading

Am I the only one who feels that we have a special friend/guide who inspires us in our creations?  I have found, also that this 'angel' or 'guide' can open up our imaginations and fuel our creative powers, given half a chance.  Many writers, musicians, artists etc have discovered this angel comes to them especially when they feel ast their lowest level in life.  I believe that, as hard as this is to take, this is the time when we most welcome him/her into our lives.  Sometimes we can recognize him/her through people that we meet who have inspired us by what they have done and perhaps our minds have absorbed the things which have pleased us most.  The chances are that they too will influence you in your own creativities.  I hope that the classic poets whose work I so enjoyed when I was a child, have inspired me to write these poems for you and that perhaps I, too, may be an inspiration to you now or in years to come.
