Words Fly: NPM 2019 Day 13

Some days writing feels so hard, words seem elusive and out of reach.  So on day 13, my poem is about the challenges of writing.

Words Fly

Some days my words hide

dipping down

under the lines

floating just beyond reach

of my pen

so shy

they perch

just beyond my mind’s grasp.

I pull at them

trying to get them to line up

like birds on a wire

some skitter as I get close

I move more deliberately

until finally

when the time is right,

they take flight.
