Writers! Story-tellers, poets, bloggers, crafters of tales! We soak in the narrative we observe around us or ponder imaginary tales we’ve woven within our heads. Each narrative grows and takes on form in surprising and beautiful ways. We find ourselves compelled to turn experience, suspicions and suppositions into word upon word and paragraph after paragraph that help make each creation live!
Sometimes I wonder about that process. It is both awesome and mysterious. (I would also suggest it can be a sacred calling, but I’ll restrain myself for the moment! Talk amongst yourselves on that point.)
Today’s poem may resonate for writers like me who think deeply about their lives and how writing drives them to create. This poem sums it up for me.
