In The Form Of A Phrase

Facebook asks “What’s on your mind, Arlene?”
My answer: It comes in the form of a phrase.

 In The Form Of A Phrase

It comes in the form of a phrase,
Expands into something like verse.
Forcing a process, or bringing it forth
With a depth, breadth and width
From someplace beneath,
In a place undefined.

Thirsting and bursting,
A spurting heat flowing
From some beat unknowing
Where one owns on loan
Inspiration, inventiveness, artistry, vision.

Some vague place rooted in
Start, middle, end;
Grasped by the flow that befriends
In a summing-up.
And so, you stop,
Hoping that what you have written
Is good, valid, durable,
Near to all, done by all,
Clear, recognisable.

In essence fired,
Inspired by
Pyres of phrases.
