Finding The Right Medicine

They certainly are not diamonds,
these dandelion roots of words
wantonly sprawling themselves
across single sheet of white paper.

Leave a senseless trail spooling out,
foolish empty rot of nonsense
that tunnels beneath surface of any
innocent purpose under heaven.

A weeping saint, aflame with fervor,
could not swiftly put an end
to mindless drizzle of black ink
that furs this coat of wild creativity.

Seeking inner calm, close eyes to see
coastal peak, field of wildflowers, bright
red poppies flaring their heads in golden
sunlight. Once again, at peace.

Elizabeth Crawford  6/26/16

Notes: This one came in pieces, one stanza at a time. Each, several hours apart. Used all of the words, one in the Title.

    Well you certainly found the right “poetic” medicine to produce this great poem from all those trying words. You are no doubt enjoying some peace too after that feat!

    If words were instant diamonds i wonder if we would still play on the page..or sit smug..and shiny..and with a big ‘what now’ inky flowers are much more moveable..like dreams..imagination and wonderful medicine

  6. This is how words should pour out… One at a time, but when finished something is out.
