Her eyes are carried on a light wind

My attention span is short. Yet, my pen’s is still shorter
It looks absent only after a few words… a few lines
Though ink in its intestines and subject to furnishing hands
It never finishes what it begins. At least, what I want it to finish
So, I hold it’s face with both hands, as we share eyes
“Write, will you. Do not stop until I give consent.”
“Ok” she says, “I will focus”…as her eyes are carried on a light wind 
I presume that’s why my poetry is never more than a few lines… a few 
expressions.

    A really meaningful little meditation on creativity. You're made creativity creative. Meta creativity? Nice write.

    I love this, it expresses a very familiar feeling in a truly original way! PS: Why I haven't been contributing lately: been dealing w/very broken, damaged right wrist & tendon-broke/dislocated 6/27, cast was to come off 8/22, but had open reduction surgery on 8/14-follow this link to see what's permanently installed: I feel like I belong on Star Trek! http://www.handinnovations.com/pdf/DVR_technique.pdf
