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
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
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.

Chitrangada Sharan I feel the greatest excitement when thoughts build into something beautiful. i think how lucky I am I didn't need wood like a carpenter to build my home of thoughts. It did take time. Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to share. Have a wonderful afternoon.

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.
