I write to capture

I reach for the shape

as I write,
I feel for a wholeness just beyond what I can see,
a hesitant shape that seems to be there in the fog,

as I venture words in my first reach for it,
and then in the recasting,
something within me judges the adequacy
of what comes to my words
to what comes to my sense of the shape before me,

the constructions, the words, change
to focus on what organizes in the symbiosis
of what already is and what the creative in me
feels to be a newness that can come forward.
