The Womb Of Time

The Womb Of Time

A Poem by rivers
"

creative expression begins with the moment something appears in front of your minds eye...as an empty page taunts thoughts and evolves moments

"





















hours slowly drip


onto the taunting empty page


the water color palette


dries as if it were thoughts penned


onto a tightly stretched canvas


its been said so many times before


similes... form clots at the tip of the quill


words... finally surrendering to gravity’s flow


the ink scribes the rumination


passing the same stuttered notions


thoughts expressed another way


in another poignant passing moment


metaphorical sleights of hand ~


dry onto the sheet of paper


as traces of past now’s…


miles of written reverie spun


like a spider reprocessing,


carefully savoring,


each fine silk thread of web


spinning the womb of time...

You are defiantly one of my favorite writers on here. I love the depth here.

In all my complicated ups and downs here at the cafe, there are those that I look up to as the true poets that can create exceptionally stunning works. This is a strong example of why I think of you this way.

This is one all writers can relate to, it has the mark of a writer in his moment in time, filling time with his works, masterful Harlon.
