Knitting Words Together

Take a deep breath
and release it slowly
to clear your mind.

Imagine the blank page
is a field of snow
or a sand beach
waiting for you to
take the first step.

Enjoy the feel of
your hand moving
across the page

the sight of words
appearing beneath
your pen

the sound of the
nib scratching
the paper.

You are knitting words
together, stitch by stitch,
word by word,

creating something out
of nothing to keep you
warm on a winter night,

to keep you company
so you're not alone.
