The Circular Thoughts of My Writing Mind

I fear the fading of words

And the diminishing of my light.

 

This writing journey of stops and starts.

There was a bright flare in the beginning –

So mesmerising!

Now I face the slow hard climb back,

Which is almost slipping.

What do I hold onto?

 

Thoughts dissolve into ether—

Of the mind, the soul, the web.

 

The contrariness of my writing spirit

Is partly to blame.

It crowds my mind with longings and ideas

Nearly audibly!

Exactly when I have lots of other work.

 

Now that I’ve cleared space for it to blossom,

It’s off, cavorting with the fairies!

 

And so between me and my words

Me and my unwritten, massing, relentless stories—

A gulf.

Of years and aeons

And that one spark
