Writing Takes What?


time and concentration?
energy love passion?
routine stubborn determination?
produces surprises changes?

have you recently written?
a few interesting ideas poems?
paragraphs pages lately? just in
your amazing mind? not kept on
paper computer for keeps?

doing a lot of thinking?
but have not been dreaming?
poems since just after stopped writing?
constantly occasionally wondering?
will there be time for future writing?

these dream poems are bliss
I miss that eureka creative kiss
wherever such poems chrysalis
I buzz upon this metamorphosis
I am artisteo lost dream visions

where do imaginative wings
come from? from where do thoughts
spring? it is a beautiful state faiths
wondrous feeling rarely experienced
flounders love flow swift tide shift mud

    yes mud is good, you got it Robert :) , anyone who has gone floundering, with a weighted drag net,
    at a river mouth muddy estuary, where the river meets the sea, with wind wave salt sea breeze,
    blowing down a lonely haunting desolate beach, summer sun shining on bare skin, will know
    the shifting symmetry of muddy shift tide cloudy waters; those sentenced to cityscape experiences,
    estranged from heart stealing nature, earth thrill natural raptures will read in other critic paper
    mashe references. (Report) Reply
