Feeling compelled to write.

I step inside, close the door on the outside world

Time to concentrate the mind

Its Monday the start of a new week

Yet for the writer is not every day the start of a new week

for at all times are we not formulating?

Pondering on what is the next composition

If you are poetically minded

or perhaps where the next chapter is going to lead you

in that blockbuster you are composing.

The news hound sitting, waiting for the phone to ring

with what could be the story to expose him/her

as the next best feature writer.

Take comfort we must that whatever we write

be it fragment or the real deal, will not be flawed

but a jewel stitched to a blank white page.
