An abstract or personal look at reasons for writing.

Among the poems

and writings, strewn about,

there is a story,

"The Hushing of a Doubt."

So many thoughts

of life are written out.

The Spirit's home.

Will someone care to call?


Upon shelves

are years of trial and thought;

Memories written,

so as not to be forgot

and the product

is the patience often sought.

The spirit's home.

Will someone care to call?


There are ashes

from yesterdays mistakes;

Like crystal,

too finely made, that breaks.

But that's not the reason,

from sleep, the spirit wakes;

It's to be home,

should someone care to call.

Thanks Bert. ... This was a poem I wrote way back when I was wondering if writing was worth the time or effort. --- Huh, Forty years later and the spirit is alive and well, tired but awake.
