#NaPoWriMo Day 28, #poem and #sketch

1-hand holding pencil, sketch rough 4-27--2019


Little words
letter forms
crawl out from cobwebs of thoughts,
push aside barrage of
daily din,
collectively form, sometimes
orderly, mostly scribbled
furiously on lines
with a desire to make that
leap of faith–allow fingers to furiously
keyboard their forms,
only to be scrutinized
and possibly shared
on public screens.

Little words
letter forms
unending ideas
peal from pencil tips
attempting stardom’s
light of day…
Ignore all internal naysayers
and let us emerge
onto life’s daily stage,
let us stand stark naked
for all eyes to pounce upon,
do prod on
