Amazing

		

                It’s something of a miracle, isn’t it, 
		how words are plastic magic and can fly, 
		given the proper propellant, 
		which in my opinion is “need,” 
		a compulsion to commit to paper 
		or to a listener’s ear 
		or a reader’s eye 
		the gist and heart 
		of that maelstrom 
		of syllables and sounds 
		screeching around 
		in some very needy cavern 
		buried deep in that mine 
		we call mind?
 
		Amazing...

    This was very well done, my friend. Yes... no matter how creative we seem at the time the key is a "need to express" that is most important. I often wonder where the words come from... loved this! Going to my favorites :)
