Suspend your skepticism, she whispered,
and you’ll find your greatest power comes
From the blurring, the unknowing, and then
The swing-and-a-miss of the first words
Scrawled across the white expanse of page.
They can’t all be diamonds. Not every waterfall
Breeds rainbows. But even the most petulant
Of muses will come calling every now and then.
When the barrier between the writer and
The written thins – that’s when you know that
You are really getting close.
For The Sunday Whirl (prompt words: suspend, power, swing, diamond, waterfal, barrier – only managed six of the words this time – ah, well.)
