"This Process Of Writing" (by Joe DiMino)

I sit quietly…
listening before I begin;
making certain
even the air
holds no surprises,
no sudden thuds
or shadows
that need explaining-
this process of writing-
birthing the first word;
searching the old foundation
for something missed
or a crack
that shouldn't be there;
of course we know
nothing is new-
just reformed,
our chameleon nature
green and patterned,
these tuning moments
magnified beyond pixels-
that's it!
we are instruments,
on rare occasions
divinely played….
