This describes the joy of creative writing in it's various stages, and the emotions involved in producing a work you know has expressed all you wanted to convey. I thought it would be interesting to use a female character in the poem.

LETTERS AT HER FEET

Shestumbled on some letters,

Scattered at her feet,

An alphabet in tatters,

Discarded, incomplete,

Upon the path where pen and writer meet.

She puzzled at their meaning,

Unsure of what to do,

Restless, in herquest to find,

A solitary clue

Until, atonce, the inspiration grew.

She mined some inner feeling,

And harnessed it with cord,

Bound it to a letter chain,

To form a seemly word,

That flew with all the freedom of a bird.

The word became a sentence,

Assembled intorhyme,

With nature in attendance,

At the sound of church bell chime,

Caught up in the dance of space and time

Where verses join their partners,

In an orbit round the sun,

As rivers flow with golden ink,

So lavishly, they run,

To find the path,

Where she had once begun
