Possibilities of Change


Fragmented thoughts

jumbled together,

flushed from brain to page.

A tangled web of run-ons

and errors

awaiting the next phase.

Shuffling and sorting,

striking out, simplifying;

ridding the draft of

redundant thought and phrase.

Each word weighed and measured

then pieced back together

unearthing the possibilities

of change.

    Really liked this a lot - esp how you describe the writing process (esp your use of the flush imagery- it was perfect for me!)

    Please phone it into 951-665-8161 and Id be honored to feature it at www.virtualpoetryreading.com.

    Thanks again for the lovely read,
