Where the text goes

He wrote a poem
words on a page
words in a journal
he carried with him
a few words
scattered over weeks
disparate thoughts
varied inspirations
but falling together
in a pattern of birth
unexpected, unanticipated
pieces fitting together
lines adhering
to one another
forming coherence.

Reminds me of William Stafford writing of how the poems led him where they wanted to go. Keep following the words, friend.

the gathering of words.
finding them like food
in the woods.
