My 'signature' poem.
         A title graphic to accompany the poem Words Whirling 'Round in my Head

         Many a night I lie in my bed,
         wanting for sleep but thinking instead.
         Thoughts swirl and eddy or race on ahead,
         clouds of confetti that beg to be read -
         these words whirling ‘round in my head.

         Many a morn I rise before dawn
         to capture my thoughts before they move on.
         Couplets that rhyme and phrases of prose
         to be anchored in ink before they all go -
         these words whirling ‘round in my head.

         Many a day I struggle and strain,
         pit word against word, wracking my brain.
         Sifting through noise til I find a refrain,
         in search of a poem that’s perfectly framed -
         these words whirling ‘round in my head.

         One final click and the words are all sent
         to wander a web of indifferent extent.
         Hoping that somewhere they just might connect
         and hope above all that they mean what I meant -
         these words whirling ‘round in my head.

                   Words Whirling ‘Round in my Head, Terrence G. Fisher 2019
