how do I finish this?any suggestions?


Words exhale rhythm and rhyme,
Tasting of air filled with brine,
That once carried notes from windblown chimes,
After falling from the cloudless clime.

It is odd that air travels so far,
Only consumed and exhumed from lungs and heart
Air who's element creates stars perpetual light,
And presses against skin on sultry nights.

    It's all so very personal. Just relax your mind and let your heart/soul take over. Write from your gut, whatever you feel or think. Let pen or keyboard flow freely. Edit later when you're empty of the emotions that began the writing.....like how you stop eating when full and satisfied from a delicious meal. And....keep a note pad handy to note creative thoughts as they come to you as you are about other business. Then refer back to your notes when you return to pen or keyboard.
