The Wandering Mind


Richard Miller

Scritch dot slash, scratch slash scratch
Scritch, scratch, scritch, scratch
The pen sings its foreign song
As it wobbles back and forth across the page

Symbols magically appear on the blank sheet
As the whispered music builds and fades
Creating unspoken words from the whispered music of the pen

Bits and pieces of the unseen writer
Hide within the alphabet mosaic
That records the pen's journey down the page
In a patchwork quilt of translated thoughts

One enigmatic snapshot
Of a solitary mind
As it stops and ponders
On its timeless journey
