Finding the Words

by sandy montgomery

Each poetic heart has one cry above all others
A quest which grows to obsession
In the waning hours of the day
When the sun is in its dregs
Weary, worn in the search
The prize like a light dances at the edge of conscious thought
Skipping barely out of reach
Laboring to bring an idea into the reader's eye
The poet's heart will not faint , it will continue
Until, like the dawn breaking over the horizon,
That perfectly suited word presents itself
Joy infuses the scribe as labor bears luscious fruit
A mind that at last can rest, till the Muse calls again

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
