it is very quiet
the realization of a deep loneliness
apparent in the sound-sucking carpet
in the dim light of way past midnight

acceptance of what I need
not always found in my words
or my forms
something undeniable
presses my mind ever forward
forces my fingers to choke pencils
don’t always know which way
to
shove the compass needle
magnetic attractions don’t always apply

searching for something to shove inside the attic
to store inside my soul
maybe

treasures for the grand kids to find
hope for my older self to embrace
there is the first effort
before the wheels start spinning again
what now?

my book is nearly ready to be launched into space, my mind is more nervous than my hands

  1. The life of a creative is very often one of “deep loneliness.” The writer or artist is, to some extent, an outsider, and that’s a lonely place indeed. But from loneliness comes creativiy–the artist’s need to fill the void–and that’s a very good thing.

    Lovely words & art, AM.
