The Journey of a Poem
It begins with an inspiration, a fleeting thought
Speeding through the mind, and then it’s caught.
The idea scribbled on paper, then crushed and trashed
Slowly, it starts to shape up in the second draft.
The words play together to build the narrative –
A simile here, or a metaphor creates a bit of imagery.
The verses start forming with meter and rhyme
After writing and rewriting, flow the chiseled lines.
Here comes the final version and with an artsy flair,
It is released from seclusion, ready to be shared.
Such is the evolution of a work of poetry
A journey from evanescence to a joyful reality.
