A Writer's Mind

May 16, 2019

I sat in the midst of boxrs filled to the brim

with old letters, journals, short stories,

essays, and poems finished, or not, notes 

from writing classes I took or taught,

chapters from unfinished novels, I had 

spent years writing, notebooks filled with

favorite quotes like "Persistence  and

and determination are omnipotent." 

I renewed ties with characters from the past ,

rewrote several poems, tossed others out..


My closet needed weeding out.  It holds clothing

that begs for one more wearing, like the black

Roaring Twenties sheath. Should I toss it out?

Oh, the dark secrets that dress could tell.

I rehung the fringed number and thought of 

Daisy as I sorted through more piles, toss a gold

purse with a broken  zipper, then made sure

The Great Gatsby was set back on the shelk.


In an old album, I glance d at a photo.

A teen stood in the woods, holding a babe

in her young arms.What wooded area was this?

Did the girl meet someone there in the woods?

Did she give the babe away? Was it me?

I grab pen, paper. Thoughts spin in circles.

Later I would decide how much of this tale

would  be trueth, how much would be fiction.
