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.
