U3A Writing: Inspiration

Monica Duckering’s poem concerns the art of writing.

Round and round inside my head,
Swirling like seaweed caught in the tide
Or sere leaves blown on a wild wind
A myriad memories, ideas, spin endlessly
From that darkened corner of my mind.

Then, sudden, surprising and secret
Like sharp spears of coloured light
Reflected from sheer facets of diamonds
Come the words to paint a picture
To be captured in my net of pen on paper.
