Start

Start.  Start writing.

Ideas will come.

I think I just broke

the record for

pro–well, not starting.

You can’t edit nothing.

For a long while,

I had nothing.

My mind was

hither & thither

hither & yon

nothing seemed

to make the cut.

My critic was

on its high horse.

Nothing seemed

“good enough”

to write about.

I needed “enthusiasm”

inspiration

and like a

slithering snake

it always slipped

through my

hands.

So I gave up

chasing it

and looked for

another prey.

There’s no ‘perfect’

start.  There’s

just start.
