In the Beginning


Realms of fantasy lay

hidden in the depths of imagination
while the turbulence of reality buries them deeper
the writer must dig them out word by word
never in order
but a jumbled mass of verbal imaginings
tangled by life like wool that met the playful kitten
and the mess must be sorted
each word a vital piece of a jigsaw
slowly building the image
without the aid of a picture in the lid
with each piece
the image becomes clearer
more vibrant until it takes on a life
a life all its own
and there the story begins
