Free Write. {Poetry}

image

words

hold no weight
except the pressure of your pen
against blank page,

turning nothing

into words from your mind, as
emotions captured
& transformed
into
a handful
of
coins to toss

 into 

 the wishing fountain,
silver turns
into possibilities

that ripple, or maybe,
they go “kaw-plump”
into water
like a satisfied trout

falling back
into
the river after capturing
a few flies,

and you watch
from the river bank
toes tucked under sand warmed
by the mid-day sun,

& you’d like to teleport
to the ocean,
see

the uncontrollable waves

breaking against sandstone cliffs
for a brief second
& watch

as the ravens
glide off the cliffs,

weightless

black wings against blue sky
in a stiff breeze,
reminding you
why

you write,

freely.
