Trying to Write

it’s all been digested slowly
convolutedly thoroughly

it has worked its way out
now it has stained the paper
and lies in a heap

a metaphor
as old probably as the four-letter
anglo-saxon word we all know
and use vehemently or slyly
or mutter under our breath
every time we try to write something

Got some great lines in there. Just close your eyes and type (metaphorically unless you're a better hunt and pecker than I) I always look at writing like I do photography. Take a thousand shots and hope for 5 good ones. Just write until your fingers bleed and sort through it for the gems. Good luck sir.

Thank you. It was just one of those days. I've got lots more.

Parchment that once glowed so bright with ideas if prerogative no longer seems so right. Trying to help some. It seems on track you just need to ponder a while longer.
