WRITING A POEM ALMOST FEELS
LIKE FALLING IN LOVE

The natural spirals set within some flowers
feel like astonishing examples of the near
perfection of Natureís handiwork.
While I canít explain the exact connections
around us and aspects of human anatomy,
for instance, I have some intuitive knowing,
something I draw upon when writing.  It is
oft-times difficult to select the just right
phrase, unless, of course, the lines just flow
and the words fit exactly.  At times such
does happen, other times not so often.

Those other times when I am able to
conjure up the lines and images with an
exactness I canít always logically explain,
I cease to be concerned.  Perhaps this
process is like falling in love and the
knowing that things will be alright some-
how, nearly no matter what, no matter when.
