do over

Wakingimage

sometimes you create something
and it just doesn’t feel right
even though you created
the image you saw
as your waking thought.
and you value waking thoughts
more than anything.

so you sit with it a while,
in case something
surfaces
and changes things.

but eventually you realize
that it just doesn’t work
so you cut it up

Cut1

then you cut it up again
and again

Cut2

and tomorrow
or the next day
you start over,
weaving the parts together,
in a new way.
bringing in new pieces
and weaving them in and out
over and under
and you don’t stop
until
it tickles
you.

    This is brilliant, dear. I love how you weave and work your magic with cloth and words.

    Yes. I have this in my writing and my life, right now especially. Thank you for helping me make sense of the mess. 😉
