from holding tank to page

coalescing and the poem

I hold thoughts and experiences within me,
in some kind of holding tank 
I don’t quite perceive most of the time,
then I notice a coalescing collection 
that leaps out at me,
my creative impulse molds the collection
into a form that pleases the word artist within me,

I create a collection of words
to hold the fragments 
that want to be a whole,

and somehow it is.
