Words Enough And Time

There are enough words

 to go around. There’s no need

for me to covet yours,

 and yet somehow you seem

 to find the perfect ones 

while I fuss, fumble and groan,

trying first this and then that.

 You take words and shape them into song

while I stutter and stumble along.

Still, if I keep practicing

maybe I’ll turn stumbles into song.

    I love it when a poet makes her words belong to a specific time and event and them shares them out for all of us to play with and be inspired by! You do just that, Joan. 🙂
