Composing

I choose words carefully

With fretful consideration

Balancing meanings with sound and form

Trying to capture elusive half thoughts

That dissolve and crumble at the slightest touch

Interpretations of mystery

Pictures of the unseen

Symphonies of silence punctuated by the tap of time’s baton

Taking the measure of the day into

Account
