Verse comes in sheets of driving rain. Thoughts pitter-pat ceaseless refrain. Soaked through, my soul's washed clean of pain. Words keep me sane. Words keep me sane. While mind floats, buoyed by the flow, The heart absorbs what none can know. In foggy depths, rare insights glow. They're birthed just so. They're birthed just so.
At d’verse we were prompted to write a poem in the monotetra form. I was happy to oblige!

Kerfe appreciates this form;
As it rhymes into pith transforms;
Though she rarely likes to conform,
It bucks the norm, it bucks the norm.
Well-done and agreed. There’s healing in them words.
❤ Lisa ❤ – I think you know that very well, Lisa (regarding words in general).
David, I’m not sure where I would be — or if I would be — without them. They do come in handy ❤
“Words keep me sane. Words keep me sane.” oh don’t we all who deign to place pen to paper know this deeply in our souls, David. Wonderfully penned throughout.
