Just Do It

Just Do It

You just open
some sort of
inspace that connects
to the outspace
and both are
vast dark / light
from which, or
through, there pours
this thing, poetry,
made of words
you didn’t know
you knew how
to put together
and it’s true
you didn’t know:
oh vibrating instrument.


Kim, for the Weekend Mini Challenge at 'imaginary garden with real toads', invites us to write about 'just doing it'.

  1. I especially love how you describe the process of writing....

    like spinning music from a yarn of nothing.

    1. Wow, Bjorn, what a wonderful description. I hope you plan to use that line in a poem of your own!

  2. Such a delicious climax... especially after the delight of getting there. Love the progression, and the way the structure urged me to read the poem while gasping.

  3. "...made of words you didnt know you knew how to put together".....Exactly!

  4. Oh, I enjoyed this poem, Rosemary! I love the thought of opening an inspace that connects to an outspace from which poetry pours out! It's the pure joy of words!

  5. I love how you describe how a poem is born while preserving the mystery. :)

  6. I can't tell you how many times I say "I've got nothing" and then I get a prompt and ... a favorite pops out.

  7. I'm really liking your inspace and its connection with ends, like tubing pipes. BTW, I worked worked with outer space, astronauts, spacecraft, and their controls at NASA Manned Space Center at Houston, with Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab outer space vehicle missions. That was in one of my former lives.

    1. Something about this comment – gelling with everything else I know about you – made me think, 'I bet Jim's a Scorpio!' I checked on facebook and so you are. (Takes one to know one.) I am always saying that I've had many lives in one. That particular one of yours must have been very interesting!

  8. Yes ..💞 we never truly know until it all comes together .. as though rhythmic beating of the heart pouring itself out onto the page 💞

  9. I love the idea of connecting inner to outer. It puts me in mind of magic portals where all you need to do to visit a new world is just have the courage to take that first step though.

    BTW, I just announced the winners list on my blog. You may find it quite interesting to peruse it. ;)

    1. Ha, time difference means I have only just seen this; not long out of bed. But I have already seen your email with the good news – actually first thing I read this morning! :)
