The Poet Makes It Look So Easy
Words that hum
an effortless bridge from image to image
at the end, the aha.
I get a few good line breaks,
a metaphor, a clever image,
a poignant note,
correct spelling even.
Apparently solid and firm.
like night dreams at sunrise,
snowflakes on the window pane,
the words dissolve
and I am left with cross outs and arrows
false starts and a furrowed brow,
letters scattered across the page
like noodles for alphabet soup.
Transferred from Word where it was single spaced. Advice welcome on how to get the poem single spaced here on the post other than typing it in directly. I've done this X#@X#@ post about 8 times and this is the best i can do.
