Find a Thread and Pull it into a Poem

Fear, it stands up and blows hot air in your face. You want to move past it but, fear. What do you do?

Write through it. Write about anything. The sky is dark because it is night outside, I can hear an engine as a truck passes on the street, I hear water softly falling into the aquarium behind me.

Part of my creative process.

And you keep writing until something clicks, until suddenly:

black of the sky presses down
down into the marrow of my bones
bones turning brittle from age
age falling foward never back
back into a childhood better forgotten
forgotten memories turned to dust
dust sprinkled on the dresser, never clean
clean is a state of mind best left behind
behind closed doors, the sound of whispers
whispers softly spoken of love
love can change everything in a moment
moment of laughter on the tongue
tongue twisting words floating in the air
air light and sweet like cinnamon
cinnamon brings me into morning
morning chai tea fills me with joy
joy of misty sunrises on the lake
lake lapping at the shore
shore up your heart or break it open

Write through it and see what happens, you just never know where your words will take you. Mysteries waiting for you between the spaces of now and forever. Take a moment and see where your words lead you in the comments below, see if you can find a thread and pull it into a poem.
