Po-em

 

its
wondrous letters
paint my thoughts
out loudly
turning phrases
into meanings so
strong
they make me dance
throw off my socks
stick toes in the grass
until they ache
from the cold
then retreat to
the living room chair
watch the spider
outside the window eat
and the sunlight
fade
so in the darkness
the letters may be reborn
a phoenix
of words

  1. Aren’t we all hoping for that inspiration that will fuel the next day’s poetic offering. Loved that you spelled it out so well for us.

    My favorite lines…
