Poetry Is Made for the Open, Available Heart

Don’t even think about it. 

Poetry isn’t made for the controlling mind. 

Poetry is made for the open, available heart – 

Empty but full, 

Ready but not waiting. 

Like a slow rolling thunder storm, 

the words come when ready. 

Sometimes slow, large drops. 

Others: torrents and a splash. 

Don’t even think about it. 

Be a conspirer instead – 

Communing with the loveliness of a deer 

or the bony curve of an ankle. 

Who knows where this or that goes? 

Follow to enter the sublime wonder of uncertain creation. 

Who knows where this line goes? 

Follow. 

Trust. 

Make your availability to inspiration known!
