A Chapter by Wondering Mind

Sand dance



on occasion

without obvious occasion

I seem to                             find

no words

To find

the reasons

why I can’t write


but then

            I see snake- sand

crawl-dance and              winde

to silent wind songs

      on beds  barren

of high-wayed desert land

then a thought,

a memory,

an emotion


and finds

Very effective, in both content and format.
"To find the reasons I can't write..." That's an all-too-familiar preoccupation.
It's for certain that Writer's Block is right down there on Lonely Street.
From what I can see, WM, it came back to you, in big way!

 Love the format you gave this! It calls a desire to find what is not yet seen to us as you so vividly show in these verses.
"crawl-dance and              winde
to silent wind songs"
I am glad you had a "remembering"!
Awesome! ~ :-)

Wow!... You have found your words!
What a wonderful wordplay you have discovered, as you ponder on writers' block... so cool to see this momentarily evolve into sheer brilliancy! Very cool indeed! :)

Nature is a wonder...snake sand..what a delicious way to unclog the mind ! ...we have dunes which I have traversed and camped before..in my mind "snake sand" is when the wind blows across the sand leaving those wavy lines upon the dunes...is this the sight you write of?

It is often that something good comes from a wandering mind.

Posted 9 Years Ago

yes, that's certainly the way of it
