I Must Dwell With My Words

I cannot write my poems quick, I must dwell with them for perhaps a day. Ponder them, swirl them in my head, let them sink into my soul, let them dwell, and then like magic the words come spilling out . . .

This is such a brilliantly penned 'capture' of the way you 'do it,' Constance... And I envy you. I've got to get my thoughts down now --- or they usually go a-glimmering into that big black hole in my cerebrum... Congrats on your win in Line's contest. Happy Thursday, Gershon

I can mull over mine for a week before I give them the green light. Polishing I think they call it. Good luck in the contest Tom
