Writing Process

poem trail prompt 246

She dreams in words and phrases

A rhythm tapping a beat in search of lyrics

 

Pictures in her mind arrive in waves

that crash and recede

 

She prays they will return

and envelop her in holy waters

 

Sometimes she navigates her thoughts

as the storm rages

 

Sometimes she treads water

waiting for the soft sea to whisper

 

At times she rushes to capture

big ideas as tides roll in

 

Mostly she waits for lines

to secure each stanza

 

as her heart sings a new song

  1. I love the imagery of thoughts, words, sometimes assaulting us and sometimes you almost have to go fish them out of the waters, other times they just come to us in silent waves.
    Beautifully done!

  2. OML! This is SO beautiful and visual. LOVE it! I have a poetry journal where I keep poems from friends and acquaintances. I would LOVE to add this to my pages if it’s ok. If not, I understand. It is very, very beautiful…
