Discovery

ars poetica

NaPoWriMo 2022 // day 11

apparently
writing poetry
is twice and half
as romantic as it sounds

half
because
far too much time
is spent
counting lines
and looking up rhymes
and wondering why
I
as a grown-up person
(supposedly)
have decided to return
to the sandbox

and twice
because
there is nothing
like listening
to your own mind
whisper words
that suddenly
swell out the tips
of your fingers
bursting with beauty
and vibrating with your truth
and then blinking
and seeing your own
soul
spread across the page
and finding it
good
