When I Write #sol18

March 23, 2018

I write predawn,

Ideas slipping through my thoughts

like clouds I want to catch.

I work through some,

but when my feet hit the floor,

they evaporate like fog,

only the mist of them remain.

  1. This is such a lovely poem. I like all those related words–fog, cloud, mist. They really convey the nebulousness(is that even a word?) of ideas and the challenge of catching them on paper. Three cheers for morning writing!

  2. Beautiful image — I find those thoughts and ideas find their way back again. Sometimes they have changed or developed but somehow I still seem to be working on them.

  3. You’ve captured the pre-dawn writing incredibly well. All the words of nebulousness (I don’t think that’s a word – nebulaity? Nope.) really describe it. And not just pre-dawn – in the car, as I cook – anywhere a notebook isn’t available!
