Can you make sense of this?

Compiling my thoughts!


To write some poetry I was inclined

Waiting to be laid, to create a special style

From the dark recess of the mind

Words, they stand there in single file.


Using my pen as the painter uses his brush

Compiling my thoughts as myself I ready

To compose, there simply is no rush

Akin to the fisherman reeling in his catch, slow and steady.


A wondrous sight to behold

Your creation being brought to life

As the perfect form of words unfold

It’s then and only then can you breathe a sigh of relief.

  1. I love the comparison to a fisherman reeling in his catch. And I see the words in single file, dropping gracefully onto the page. Wonderful imagery, Chris. And so true.
