    I sit down to a white page of blue lines
    a mighty instrument in my hand
    wrapped with my five sisters
    who are eager to make it dance
    across the white page of blue lines.
    Waiting for the synapses of my mind
    with the thoughts of a million ancestors
    feeding me with the depth of time
    and drowning me in a sea of phrases
    that are metaphorically –
    challenged.
    Ideas jumbled inside
    having no relation to each other
    creating mass confusion in the place
    called my brain,
    trying to maintain
    and refrain from being
    repetitive, redundant,
    or just plain –
    whack.
    The dance has yet to come
    but I’m still so eager
    that I’m busting at the seams
    to hear my soul
    tell my mind
    to tell my hand
    to tell my sistas
    to dance –
    across that white page of blue lines.

    I been there.....Sometimes the flow is slow in coming, but it shall come...relax meditate and let the poetic flow overtake you that you may paint panoramic pictures with the verbs that you scribe illuminating the hearts and stimulating the minds of those who dare be captured by your dissertations of thoughts and emotions.

    to me...

    it is the feeling of being
    caged...

    suffocating beneath the letters
    the words and phrases
    that block your
    mental~poetic
    freedom....

    i take a step back...
    read others...
    and in the middle
    of my midnights...
    my pen light
    illuminates...

    write poetry~
