Writing's Iterative


Sheet's plain white
Inviting to write
Mind thinks otherwise
Blank's fine it says.

Write a letter or two
Turn it into a word
Words look wonderful
Only meaning's lacking.

It's time to edit
Inserting, striking off
With no satisfactory
Compromise being reached.

Filled up sheet
Pressed into a ball
Falls into the dustbin
Nice throw it feels.

Process starts all over
Again on a new blank sheet
Previous thoughts seem
To come in handy this time.

Writing's iterative
More the attempts made
Better it turns out
Finally converging.

    some time really it is so hard to write. Like words are in prison released one at a time. All tied up so nice in a lovely poem. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    These breaks but have a continual impact too and so in pieces innumerable a poet finds his thoughts established and let known. A unique thought plank has made you write like this sir. (Report) Reply
