Toward Meaning, OctPoWriMo Day 8, #amwriting

Well, this was hard. (I can hear a “that’s what she said” from the audience.) πŸ™‚ I took the challenge from OctPoWriMo today which was to create a poem as a Joseph’s Star with the prompt of What Do You Know and How Do You Know It?

Personally I don’t feel that I only understand something once I’ve written it or even explored my emotions once they’re on the page. Rather, I have a pretty good idea of what I think, but writing and “massaging” each thought into a word provides clarity. Trying to express that in a terse style was so, so difficult. πŸ™‚

Toward Meaning

My

thoughts gather

placed on paper

as abstractions toward meaning.

Like a sculptor I massage

choosing words to share

felt events,

truth.
