WRITER {Five Minute Friday}

WRITER

Writer

What is a writer?

Someone who shares pictures and feelings,

Experiences and emotion.

She doesn’t just write words. Empty.

A writer paints without colors and brushes

She orchestrates without instruments or notes.

A writer captures words

She’s moved by sentences and paragraphs

She doesn’t just experience books, she reads book reviews and conversations and cereal boxes

She gets lost in the words of others

And she gets lost in the words she creates

She has a story to tell and sometimes she doesn’t know what that story is

Or who the story is for

Maybe it’s for herself.

Maybe it’s for the world.

Until she sits before that blank page and her fingers hit those solid keys

And she slowly disappears.

She gets lost in her thoughts

And her thoughts are discovered

Somehow they unravel.

Somehow they release themselves, releasing her

Releasing a message she didn’t know was there.

And she can breathe.

  1. I love the thought that writing releases a message that we didn’t know was there. Your words are beautiful and inspiring. I am visiting from Five Minute Friday, and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  2. Just thought I’d pop over to your blog and say hi. I love how you’ve captured the writer. I read cereal boxes and nutrition labels and random things too. I’m always looking to collect new words. 😉
