Verbal carpentry.

Nothing seems to move except the moon

Silently it rises

Moving through clouds and tree branches.

Morning will bring song and the dawn chorus.

Verbal carpentry

May at times lead down a cul-de-sac.

In doing so, it gives time for reflection.

You alone must

Find your way back to the writers highway.

Like the motorist approaching a speed ramp

We must slow down, change down a gear.

So it is with the writer

The more hurry, the less speed

Taking things at a steady speed

Keeps the thought process firmly on track.
