Well, this was hard. (I can hear a “that’s what she said” from the audience.) 🙂 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. 🙂
placed on paper
as abstractions toward meaning.
Like a sculptor I massage
choosing words to share
