Writing Is

Writing is a gathering.
A gathering of thoughts that breathe life;
That live, that live on notebook pages and the pages of our hearts.

Writing is the overflow.
The overflow of everything that we are;
That exists, that exists in our present, past and future.

Writing is intentional.
An intentional act of being present in the moment;
That being, that being aware and alive – seeing, hearing, feeling, living.

Writing is growing.
Growing beyond oneself and into one’s thoughts;
That pondering, that pondering of our thoughts that are gathered.

  3. Donnetta, there is so much to like about this poem–thank you for sharing it! I had to smile when I saw your tags because anaphora is one of the poetic devices I’m exploring this week.
