New Writer


How does anyone grow

without speaking out as

taught first?


When writing is a beginning,

is new, it comes raw from

the restless mind.


Wait, persistence unveils

the meaning of poet. Soul

courts the heart and the mind

merges with emotion.


Days or decades later

simple words no longer

serve and a searching starts

A quest for untaught truth

Encouragement Always

I was thinking earlier today about novel writing. You write and write, throw out start over, revise, write and write until one day , decades later, you read a chapter and say, "I wrote that? That's pretty good!" Then you know you have mastered your craft. Like that. :) ~ Lady A ~
