The middle of the book

by Jem Croucher

I’ve reached the middle of my book
these little friends of mine
carried with me whence I go
and with me for a time

Scribblings out and jottings too
the scratching of my pen
there to capture all the words
at happenstance and when

These books will last six months or so
and then I’ll start another
keeping all as treasures still
each precious as the other

Capturing poems every day
they are a part of me
but what comes from their pages
is there for all to see

I’ve reached the middle of my book
but there’s another half to go
waiting for the joy of words
my future has to show
