Lost Lines

.

Repeat the great lines

that come to you when you

have no pen and paper

to record and lock them down,

preserved to read later

and perhaps share.

.

Repeat the best lines ten

times so that later it comes

back after having walked around

in the psyche for an hour or

so, marinating.

.

It may not be exact or complete,

but sometimes preserving an idea's

essence is all you can salvage.

I've Lost Entire Poems

not concentrating - too busy to find a pen to put down the particularly okay series of words. All that is left is a memory that they were pretty good and gone forever. Thank you for the visit and for taking your valued time to comment - love and prayers ~a~

Catch them if you can.

If you only knew.
