Sometimes with rhymes
Sometimes with none
Thoughts of the next line
on the tip of the tongue
Remembering a moment
an event or words said
Jotting down quick notes
lest one should forget
Longing for quiet time
to try to write verse
for searching for rhymes
or simply to savor the sounds of words.
To muse quite long on a phrase quite short
Being poetic in a sage poet’s world.

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013
