The scene is beautifully painted with words
And this tapestry composed of words
With threads of gold, silver and silk
Is a feast for the eyes
Puts a smile on my face
The craftsmanship is second to none
Created with love
Telling a story
Conveying the complexity of the mind of the artist
Words are the emanation of the soul
Creating the most exquisite tapestry

Do you know how you anticipate eating a delicious meal that’s waiting for you?
How you can almost taste it?
How you can smell the aroma?
Do you know how you anticipate seeing a friend you haven’t seen for a while?
Basking in their company and catching up?
Do you know how you anticipate entering your warm house
When you have been walking outside in a cold winter night?
Do you know how you look forward to sleeping in your comfortable bed at the end of a long day?
When you can’t keep your eyes open any longer?
That’s how I feel when I haven’t written for a few days
When I know I’ll soon have a chance to put to paper again
My thirst will be quenched
My hunger satisfied
My fatigue will disappear
And joy will take their place
That’s what writing has come to mean to me

I get into in a zone
When I write
A special place
A place of reflection and calm
I’m with people
There is talking around me
But I don’t hear it
When I enter this special space
It’s hard to leave
I like to linger
The world and its activities await
But I’d like to delay them
So, I stay
I Stay a little bit … longer
