Poetry inspired by a winter storm
The Words Will Come


Kathleen McNamara


Blank paper
blank mind
maybe not so blank
just befuddled

Words swirling in my mind
like a flock of starlings in a gale
longing for a place to land
no match for the howling winds

Too much noise
too much angst
too much hysteria

Time to shelter from the storm
turn off the noise
turn my back on the hysterical
leave them be

Just be
the words come in the calm
find the quiet place
the words will come
