Let me take a moment here

And just pause

In between my work

And from it all

A temporary rest session

To reflect on where I am

As my inner and outer glow

Illuminates like incandescence

As I take not just a part of poetry

But all of it

As my very own delicatessen

I’m taking my moment now

Deep in silence am I

As I concentrate on this poetic high

That is buried so deep inside

And just waiting to explode

To the very outside

Not going anywhere

But just in my mind for a bit

A slight rest period

That is, it

Taking a step back to analyze

My life because of this

And where it is going

In regards to poetry

And what is worth further noting

And knowing at this time

I’m taking an intermission

And calling it mine


Where writing comes alive
