Why I Write…

Why I write…

I do not see shimmering images.

I see words laid out like piano keys

Sometimes floating by like clouds

These words are waiting to be played,

conformed into some new shape.

Alone, they too are devoid of meaning and value

Together, we can create

In union, we achieve expression

These words, they tell me.

I don’t tell them.

I am only a vessel,

floating through an infinite sky

where words are clouds

I cannot let them just pass me by…
