Prompting from the ether, you have inspired

my muse; so many use your special twists

to find a path, yield a pen and write pain

or love or loss or laughter – our relief,

our expression, ourselves, our inner thoughts –

as the words fight and are dragged out unwilling

Or leap without waiting for our say so!

I always say this is my catharthis

but it is also great fun and challenging –

spontaniety or deliberate!


For Morgan Dragonwillow & all the other prompters of OctPoWriMo 2020!
