I write a poem
in the moment
and I wonder
whether it’s any good

I read it and

does it convey all
that is on my heart
and in my mind
in a way others
can know and feel

does it do the job of
a poem
to make you
and feel
and wonder

and other times
a poem comes to paper
freely written and
as if from the
moment of its inception
to its birth in ink

and no thought
crosses my mind
of its authenticity
for it is
an idea come to fruition
it is a poem born
