How the writing happens

The soft shuffle of pencil on paper
as Dumbledore’s wand
unburdens the mind
of its weighty thoughts
relieves the crowdiness
of words and images in the air.

My pencil is a magic wand
conducting coherence
painting beauty
clearing a path
for words to arrive
on the page unencumbered.

I am not an editor
I am a listener
trusting that what is needed will appear
hearing precisely the words
vibrating in my vicinity
clearing a path
for words to arrive
on the page unencumbered.
