Words Come (for blog – On The Heath – I Of July)

Words come
Definite in the press of his pen

As if his ball point
Calls the very thing

To its truth
And written absolute

And carves a living thing
Upon the mind’s white page,

Then frees it
From the words’ vehicle

So the image
Stands real and proud

And wordlessly
Three dimensional.

  1. Yes, fascinating how inspiration inspires … 😉 Two poems (this one and Heath’s why write?) opened the channel through which words come, to me.

    In another sense: I joined a writer’s group last year. Once a month we gather to read our work for each other, and have it critiqued. Which means, of course, we’re expected to critique others. I love how dramatically creation expands when minds interplay freely.

    Writing is often a lonely task. It’s good to be reminded, we’re not alone. And better to build on each other’s creations.
