Poetry: Transform

Transformation of person to poet

One day something grabs you without touching

An idea lingers in your mind, like garlic on the tongue

A vision walks all over you placing footprints
on your being without leaving a bruise

Words become puzzles you have to solve

You write, you type, you scratch
an equation out hoping the math totals

You turn emotion into a story, a prose, a poem

Baptised in ink you are now a poet-
hungry for characters, yearning for stories
sick with discovery...

M.C. Escher "Transformation"
