Creation

My pen is pregnant
The microscopic litter of letters..words
Swells inside her tube
The glorious hues of blue
Quietly wait….biding time
Until the birth of inspiration arrives

When her water breaks
And the ballpoint tip dilates
I slip a sheet of writing paper beneath
Catching every fragile, newborn expelled

They lay naked
Dripping..dangling from
Dozens of thread-like umbilical cords
Needing instant warmth…nurishment
For them to survive

Now I must lovingly nurse them
Give them their birth names
Eloquently arrange them
Before I announce their arrival

This ritual must be complete
Before readers see their faces
Or I’ll appear a proper adoptive parent
A literary midwife

Because in truth I have not created
I have merely collected and connected
Raised these baby words
Into full-grown works of art.
I proudly share with the world.
