As a response to the weekly prompt from my Florida writers’ group, to write about incongruity, I have penned this haiku verse to describe the joys and wonders of the writing process.
Haiku is poetry of Japanese origin, written in English as seventeen syllables in three lines of five, seven, and five. It is unusual to string a number of them together to form one poem as I have done here.
through time I travel unrestrained, unimpeded, here at my keyboard imagination carries me from here to there through tapping fingers fixed by mortal coil though I am, my mind runs free through the universe in tales tall and true, from realm to realm I wander, unfettered, unbound never knowing where my next destination is, or where I shall land my relentless muse pushes and pulls me along the paths she chooses compelling me to explore her capricious whims, to write what she sees telling her stories discovered along the way--- prose and poesy unable to quell her relentless siren-call, nor desiring to I follow my muse--- yet, incongruously, I never leave my chair
The pen can release the inner concepts of the mind where the sword captures a moment in time! The transfer of energy from mind to mind with the pen as a tool, outweighs the click of swords. I enjoy your concepts.
Sometimes I get stuck on an idea with the pen…..which is better than getting stuck with the sword! Thanks for the comments.
It’s true — writing is a pretty mysterious process. It’s an adventure. Even though we usually know more or less where we are going, there always are surprises along the way.
Surprises galore! And I never seem to finish anything…..I just stop each piece where it seems best.
Thanks for commenting.

It really is a compulsion, but an enjoyable one, thank goodness. Thanks for the kind words.
