On Writing

Continuing posting a poem a day in celebration of National Poetry Month -- rough drafts, mind you:

On Writing Poetry

painting with letters, syllables, words ~
unveiling Truth
through image and metaphor
arranged just *so*.

to rhyme or not to rhyme ~
this is the question
every writer must answer
before pinning ideas, wriggling,
to the page ~
before spinning thoughts
inward then outward,
waiting for words to illumine
mind and soul.
