Amplify Beautify Calcify Identify Notify

A poem comes unbidden into my head. I did not anticipate, ask for or expect it. I write down five words. Amplify, beautify, calcify, identify, and notify. There is no struggle. I stare at them, wondering what gibberish this is. A foreign language makes more sense right now One that I have never spoken and do not recognize. My muse tries to get pushy with me. Making me angry, so I shut down. A voice suggests I could keep these words for later. This infuriates me. How dare they try to control me. I tear amplify, beautify, calcify, identify and notify into bits. Determined not to think a whit about them But here we are So I guess that did not work.

Thank you for stopping by Michael. It is effortless some days they just flow onto a page. Other days, not effortless at all. It depends on Trixie's attitude at that second.
