NaPoWriMo Day 5, Writer’s High

“Writer’s High” was inspired by Mary Oliver’s “Forty Years.”

Writer's High

When words flow,
growing ideas
quickly, fervently
like purple petunias
spreading like velvet waves
I become lost
yet free, found
feeling other
like the runner’s high
setting in
after miles run.
This writer’s high
transports me from
time, town to make-believe
where I thrive other-worldy
until a dog nose
cold, wet on the elbow
grounds me.
