Message To New Writers

.

The field seems crowded

with experts who have written

for decades. This is true, but

every poem begins with

a word. Then another word.

Any published writer

will confess to that truth.

.

If old already, collect a mind

full of wisdom and add it to

the write like a fine recipe

handed down from your ancestors.

A lot can be said inside aged

tastes.

.

If young and inexperienced;

no quantifiable losses or

heart ripping catastrophes yet,

write what you know. In time,

real pain will rouse the emotions

to spill the guts of anguish

on any kind of page available.
