the stars in the sky act up, then settle

she stares at a midnight page
frankness, beginning and end
the cure, a changing heart

i am not art
but I know her

resting on park bench
she contemplates lateral thinking
how they had smirked
at her “what ifs”

she tries to wrap her mind around it
the idea that ink found new home in nice-looking flowery jacket
with half-crazed sunny-faced owner

thoughts dismissed
time to write new page

    The line that stuck in my mind is: I am not art, but I know her…
    neat writing.
    I love reading poetry, though I don’t have the discipline for writing it. Perhaps that is why I admire poets so much.
    Thank you for visiting our child friendly site.

    The writer exposed, inner, outer, the poet’s mystery…I dig deep here to listen…deeper than my spade…

    Just occurred to me – can’t think right now of another art form where you can make something about the making of it … can you?

    just an observation, you understand.

    I like your words.

    Such a fantastic title! I do love a good title, it hooks me every time 🙂

  8. I love the flow and this,

    “i am not art
    but I know her”

    This and the line that follows…brilliant. All together, enjoyed. 🙂
