it bubbles
and I blink
and stop working
where did that thought come from...
I cringe, no, not now,
I don't have time
to write another poem
but it insists
with a growing insistence
it now expands
and pops
more than
just
a thought
it is now a half verse
I try to work
I get paid for this...
but what thought was that
tramping through
the legal mumbo on my screen
and does it come first or last
the bubble pops again
and up comes
half a poem
and a title...
I shrug and give in and
my fingers birth
another worded creation
my poems are jealous like that though...
until the last stroke
they are not
satisfied.

Mine wait until I'm drifting off to sleep... and the first wisps of dreams get blasted to smithereens by some line that charges in and won't leave my head and nags until I write it down. Sometimes it brings enough friends to make a poem... but most times it leaves me aggravated at a muse whose timing leaves much to be desired! LOL

Great poem!

Often wonder how many writers relate to this.  As a realestate agt. for years, I'd have lines written on the backs of listing sheets, unneeded business cards, legal pads, etc. either so I wouldn't forget them or so they would get out of my way.  Guess it's akin to inventors, the best always happens on the way to something else.
