Keep the stream still

My poetry is

the record of my

daring and vivid thoughts

that come out running in images,

feelings and words.

 

And these fluid thoughts

that come and go and flow

as easily as a spring stream

are held captive in the dams of words

that keep the stream still

for just a little time, just enough

for these wayward thoughts

to be heard and captured by another’s flow.
