Feather and Quill


One prescription

for affliction

feather & quill

Best done daily

a potent pill


Write it down!

Write it down!


Ink for days

clears the haze

Words on paper

perspective ensues


So try it now

(What do you have to lose?)


A mope, a shout

Won’t wash it out

Grab a pencil or pen

If not now when?


A journal


even index card

Get the words down

It won’t be that hard


Practice the art

of writing every day

and watch with wonder

when the soul has its say.
