A poem a day?
But what do I say?
And how to come up with so many?
I first have to find
A thought in my mind
And some days I doubt I have any.
I'll start with a seed
(Of flower or weed)
For sprouting and branching and linking,
And then when I know
The words that will grow,
I might understand what I'm thinking.

(This poem started when I was thinking about NaPoWriMo. The phrase "A poem a day" came to mind, and the rhythm immediately led on to the thought "but what do I say?" The rest grew out of trying to express the feeling of creating a poem.)
