Monday Morning Inspiration: A Poem

Writer’s Path

Sometimes we write
And the words dance on paper
Intricate waltzes of muse and imagination
Characters leap, pirouette
Twisting through plot holes
Diving into vats of purple prose
Swimming through misplaced commas
Misspelled words
Conjunctions, conjecture
Who knows what’s in the mind
Introspection, maybe?
Show them life, don’t tell about it
Budding friendship with the thesaurus
And that growing list of baby names
Makes the story stronger
Helps it grow
We all grow through words and wonder
On that slipping, sliding path in authorhood
Where books are the stage
And characters the stars

And the end is only an illusion
