plant it, type it, tell it, go

{by Abby of Dear Abby Leigh}

i dream that i can write them grown,
to color and brazen bloom.
words like rain offer sudden life
to deep and buried truth.

drought has no place here in dream-dirt,
all is fecund soil.
the heat of plowing fingers, warms,
rewards the constant toil.

the sweat is sweet.
it sings of spring.
surprises emerge from weeds.

in dream and wake, roots grab hold.
stories lie ripe, begging to be told.

it’s time to go a’pickin’.

  20. Oh, friend. OH FRIEND. If this doesn’t capture writing in the act, I don’t know what does. Technical writing, creative writing, editing like WHOA. Is there nothing you CAN’T do?! Love.
