Poem 35


Words are puzzles

tentative strokes


a flurry

a flourish

a finality

if only.



a shape emerges

random ideas

contained in

clumsy letters.

A meaning

to the mind

who conjures.

I struggle to extract meanings

that contain truth.

hidden within my words

amongst the crudely

stated imagery

is my treasured

truth of all truths

the one I cannot escape
