The word not quite

.

Any true writer, whether good or bad,

At one point gets this feeling:

The sudden discharge, the sting!,

Illumination, idea so rad!

A color, a word, or a memory,

Sometimes a single sentence,

Better in mind than paper

Over and over, letter by letter

Write, rewrite, scratch off and repeat out loud

Over again for a word

But it, nimble, flies away,

Exactly like a small and fragile bird.

And, there, right on the verge of succeeding

It escapes and all’s for nay…

Begin again your sculpting

For an artist shall never be too proud.

.


That is how I felt working on the sentence I was telling your in my last post!

I’m not quite satisfied with this one though.

I feel the ‘Any writer, good or bad’ is not a great formulation of the idea I want to convey… :/

Will have to come back to it sometime…

Anyways, hope you ejoyed! ;)
