you write how often?

sometimes the words come easy

some take years

& others like all good urges

need release

finding paper any paper

crayon pencil paint on a wall

to get the word down right

the other times spent sitting

staring out the window

watching the cats

beautiful white paper

parker ink pen uncapped

& nothing

you write how often?

she asks

listening for words of discipline

mind focused just right

magic time of day

genius restless night

& to hear the muse don’t come easy

makes the poets sound special

so she writes that down tight

maybe to put on her wall

what I can’t quite express

sometimes the words flow out

already formed

not in my head

ready for the pen

& all I have to do is find the place

to put paper to pen
