Writing Poems

Some kind of
hunting has been
going on

and it’s the thrill
of capture
that I’m after,

the victory of
pouncing
on a piece of life,

trapping it in
the net
of language

pressing it down
into black and
white

I like this one, comparing the creation of a poem with capturing 'a piece of life'.

this is good, gilbert, as if writing poems is embarking on a hunt for prey. :)

"the victory of
pouncing
on a piece of life."

A wonderful sentiment for any artist, or for anyone who wants to live live to the fullest.
