An exceedingly wise woman
author and mother of three
while consumed in conversation shared this thought with me…
“Writing is like giving birth.”
She oughta know...

And so when I write…

I give birth to interesting ideas
imparting imagery to experience
granting life to a legacy
that will obviously outlive me
become exactly what I want it to be
say exactly what I want it to say
perpetuate my take
my slant
a verbal implant.

Words of dignity…
instead of vanity...
it’s my therapy…
keeps my sanity…
that's what writing does for me.

We all have a unique perspective
only you can express your view
communication is the objective
nobody sees the world quite like you do.

First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.
