l’écriture est…

healing

They said that writing is pain.
Writing is pain?
Nah, not for this writer
For me, it’s healing; therapeutic, cathartic, relaxing.
Especially poetry writing;
There is something implicitly soothing about
Words caressing paper
Lightly touching it with imagery, alliteration and hyperbole
Bursting forth from the mind fully formed
Like a goddess of Greek mythology
Writing is life affirming
It is the moment when you are
Almost asleep and words pour forth
Erupting without end
It is the moment of creation
A literary big bang
Just waiting to
Be discovered
To be read and adored
