skipping stones with a writer

October 1, 2018

the words lie dormant until
I pick them up with clumsy
hands and throw them like
skipping stones
and
     then
            they
                   dance
and become something more
important
than I could ever
dream
         to
             be.

    There's something so pretty and relatable about this! A lot of times people only see the writing, and not who wrote it. I like the way you formatted your poem with the words forming a sort of shape, it adds a different rhythm and texture (can poems have texture? idk but this one does) than it would've had without it. Keep writing!
