Why do I write again?

creativity, My Poems, writing

To me writing is like Nature Study.

As a water sign, I get to watch sharks,

Hammerhead sharks, circling inside my head.

I observe their habits, their behaviours…

I jot down as I watch their restlessness,

occurring or re occurring patterns.

I analyse, trying to use logic,

to understand the randomness of thoughts.

Round and round, the cage is about to pop

They get cabin fever, I set them loose:

I watch them swim free in open waters

I’m left alone with an empty brain-cage.

The stillness is new and unsettling…

I call them back using treats and praises.
