one of the few poems i have ever written


what is this cord that has lassoed me?

a book i've not yet read,
but whose cover makes me want to.
whose description and excerpt have so much pull.

a song whose score i've never studied,
but whose melody i've heard whistled
and has such draw.

a long walk i have not taken,
but whose path i can see from where i stand
and it beckons me.

i must read this book.
i must see this song's manuscript.
i must walk this path.

until then, i might not breathe.

such words of elegance and passion, expressing artist's need for creativity,

such words of simplicity and devotion expressing a little girls desire for unexplored territory and adventure.

i am writing this one down in my "inspiration" journal.

G, i am really speechless.
