Why We Write

A writer friend recently introduced me to this perfect poem.

Watering the Horse

What a fool
I was
to think of
giving up
all ambition
when suddenly I see,
with such clear eyes,
the white flake of snow
that has
on the horse's mane.

That explains it so well. I was always trying to find too many explanations for writing, but now with the simplicity and uniqueness of this poem, it defines it perfectly. Great post!
