In a wild tumble of things
The forest that is our mind
conceives a thought
Stretching and tugging and pulling
Building up, up
An idea.

Messy scrawl of a fist
Guided by a distracted mind
Lost in words,
echoes dancing behind eyes
fingers fold the page crisp.

Deep, soul-filled chuckles
Break through chapped lips
Seeking, seeking ears,
on wooden arms
pounding knuckles.

Thicker in words than in size
Holds more than a thousand lies
And happy cries
A novel of love will rise.

The process of publishing a successful book.

I love the scheme of this!   If I could give you any suggestion, it would be to remove the last line. It would maintain the mystery that you began with.   However, I think it's incredible. (I just finished a novel and am in the process of editing it, I know how you feel. And now, I am beginning all over again, with a second one! Oh, the madness!)   5 stars   Kylie
