Eyeing Think Time

Writing a poem about your process of writing a poem can be, well, amusing.

Eyeing Think Time

The energy in my swirling mind

Scribbles furiously lighting up the dark

The powerful pens pump streams of ink

Dancing faster pace, designing the page

My vision swells up in brilliant bold color

Painting my fertile imagination with delight

My sight foresees what will come in measure

Building the tension and anguish to deliver

Simple it was when first I tripped over the thought

Now it perches on my nose too close to see or touch

Squirming, twisting, constantly restless, gestating the write

Tumbling idea words pushing against my head

Snarling to be heard in the dazzling light yet detour

Escaping to dark places, slithering perilous crevices

Wondering if we dip in paint pale ghosts of ourselves

Unlocking beautiful painful things alive in our hearts

Refreshing old soul wisdom awakens to guide us on our way

Glowing amber coals of thought varnishing the write

Bursting through to glimpse the haloed oval light

My stretching vision leafing details like a secret lettered on a page

Onlooker to rambling thoughts racing to gather as a musing crowd

Drifting in the stillness word winds start singing from the silence

Lifting words to dizzying heights fluttering on the watcher wings

Mystically riveted into one sharp sight
