A LABOUR OF LOVE

What intimacy is its cause,perhaps

an immaculate conception of words;

too swift to comprehend,see or

recognise.The moment is there

and then is not.Gone with the wind

the seed of idea remains, to

germinate and gestate,fanned by a

mental fragrance of elation.Slowly

self-transcending a word into a phrase,

a sentence to a strophe;a rhyme

rides a waterfall of cadence,

into a chasm of verse. Terse or

long, the sonnet becomes a little song,

struggles to arrive.Thrust forth upon

my page;a bastard-born of pain
