I Write Because I Love The Way Words Evolve

Updated on January 12, 2019

For Me There Is No Set Pattern

It just happens

I feel in the mood

The action is so different than other things I do

Each moment creates a flow

Where it goes

I really don't know

I begin with a few words

They sound off in my head

Like a bell that rings loud and clear

Sometimes I am so calm

Other times I have let all my strongest emotions lead the way

They peck at an imaginary feeder

Just the way birds do when they search for food

My mind reveals one thought at a time

Then it surprises me with word clusters

That boggle my senses

It could be a long lost thought

That decided now was the time

It could be a completely new thought

From old ideas that band together

To expand to new horizons

I may write it

I may repeat it

Sometimes I say it out loud

I may change it up

It is my own version of word play

Where each word interacts with the next

Forming a birds nest of memories

That are weaved back and forth

Side to side

Up and down

So delicately

So romantically

They all have their place

My mind searches for more clues

Thoughts stick to other ideas

Quickly like super glue

Without the mess

A give and take

That only creates something more special

I can write for a few hours or as little as fifteen minutes

Time does not seem to matter

I feel as if my watch has stopped

As I recreate each moment

To reveal to you what goes on behind the scenes

No matter what the outcome is

They are all my little gems

I feel pride and satisfied for each existence

My feelings prompted by my emotions

Have revealed a secret justice

That have taken events of my life

Creating a million piece puzzle masterpiece

Not to complete

But to challenge myself on every level

Slowly sharing with the world

An inspiration

That glows as easily as the moon

Even on the coldest of wintery nights

      lunaticdiaries You summed it up wonderfully. I look forward to all your writings as well. It is easy to tell someone to write but it is only the writer who has to take the time and put his thoughts on paper. This is one process where it is done alone and maybe with practice can be shared. It could be so difficult to both agree on which way a writing piece should and could go. The Pats are going to the Super Bowl after tonights win. What a game. They went into overtime. Thank you so much for reading and following. Wishing you and your family happiness.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Each person is beautiful and different. Each day is new and exciting. Everything we do is amazing that we can do all the things now and in the past and in the future. We are the smartest form of life on earth and yet we are the dumbest at the same time. We kill for no reason. Even animals don't do that. So we have a lot to learn. When we stop learning we have lost our way. Writing is a good way to show and keep a record of our mistakes as well as our greatest successes. I wish more people would take the time and effort to write. It gives us time to contemplate on our lives and make a conscious choice is this where I want to be in my life and if not how do I change it. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. The best moments in my life have been times that I have been able to share my story. I can't thank you enough for being a very important part of my life. Happy Tuesday.

      Bill Holland I think it is so wonderful to see thoughts develop into a line and even a story. When hours ago nothing existed. Like the greatest magic trick ever performed over and over again. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Have a pleasant Monday.

      Beautiful poem and so relatable!

      I find myself in the same way, as you have expressed in your poem! Some thoughts or the other is always going on in the mind and I love to write them, as and when it occurs.

      Great poem, thanks for sharing.
