Writing a poem is like doing a jigsaw

Trying to make a complete picture

Out of the words in my head

Turning them this way and that

To see if they fit together

Try another word to see

If that one goes instead

Then on to the next piece

Slowly a picture starts to form

Image becomes clearer now

Word after word connects

The picture develops

On the table top dark room

The last word is slotted into place

I step back and look upon

The finished scene.
