How I Write

Sitting outside,
On a cedar board swing.
Cold beer right beside,
Looking for the “ugly” in the spring.

My mind wanders to and fro,
Looking for a spooky story.
Up top perched a crow,
Looking down at something gory.

Something starts to focus in me,
As my mind paints a Monet.
Light brush strokes I see,
Flying across my cerebral page.

Then my pen starts a flying,
Gliding in a maddened way.
So I make the crow start crying,
And make him eat the gore away.

Then my pen is between my teeth,
And I reach for my thesaurus.
To change an angry to a seethe,
See? I want you to think my vocab ain’t so porous.

    That's a good one. I liked the cerebral page and what it could entail.
