    dotsIt Feels Good to be Founddots

    I try not to write,
    but words drag me to the desk
    begging me to be the magician
    that makes them visible,
    for they were always there
    watermarks perceptible
    only to a writer's eyes.
    Once the pen surrendered my hand,
    they smiled at me and said
    "It feels good to be found."

      This one makes the whole art of poetry so magical... you show whole those words as something alive and independent, though like in some kind of dream. Then you come and wake them, or "find them". This is the way I feel about it too. Great piece!

      Wow what a beautiful thought. That the words are always there just waiting for someone to reveal them. It is a gorgeous and perfect way to describe the art of writing.
    I especially love how the words drag you to the desk.

      Yeah. You ever get a phrase in you head and you're not in a position to write, so it just hangs around until you can? Next thing you known a new poem is born of it. This reminds me of a segment on 60 minutes last week. This child prodigy is 14 and has written 5 symphonies (?) and not just he melody, but the music for each instrument. Typically he does all of this in a matter of an hour or two. He says he hears the song in his head and simply translates it to the page...when he was two he drew a picture of a cello and wrote "cello" on it and told his mom he wanted one. They had no explanation as to how he would even know what it was...Anyway, glad you freed those words...

    Need I say, great job Amy?

    I try not to write
    But words drag me to the desk
    Begging me to be the magician

      I like "invisible words freed by a magician" that's a unique way to say it. I can see them hopping up and saying, "thank you, Miss Amy, my brothers are waiting too, please write, so they can join our family."
    "Watermarks perceptible only to a writer's eyes" I like too. Thanks for sharing, Hugs, nan

      sometimes i get that feeling about a melody, something i'm just randomly humming that i know is in the key of f sharp and would sound good with ... (etc, etc) i miss that feeling with words - lately it's been so hard to be captured and ambushed by things that compel you to take up a pen and write down, but you write the scene beautifully. =]

      I don't feel the itch to write lately. I just sit down and do something. I write, comment, chat... when the inspiration hits then so be it. if not, well, then not.
    but I really like your image of "Watermarks perceptible". that's great. to be honest I expected something else after reading the title. something more romantic, a love poem. but I think I like this much more than a love poem.

      it is good when those words are found, isn't it? i like the way you personify the words, as if they have needs. the watermarks reference is cool, too. almost like the poem is already there, you just need to find it on the page. kinda like how michaelangelo did sculpture. he always said that the sculpture was already inside the stone, he just carved it out! cool write!
