effortless idea

if an idea is chopped
    into brevity
what bits and pieces
    remain intact
in the scheme of things

long lines expound
    proving truth
is illusive

if an idea is hidden
    within doubt
it should implore
    sense of self esteem
 to search for dignity

worlds of words
    expounding verse
discerning thought

if an idea is exposed
    nakedly in the wind
will it fly freely
    or fall inconclusive
left only to circumstance

doubt sneaks in
    to test virtue
leaving ideas fragile
    asking for a little effort
to pursue effortless idea

one bold stroke
    paints expression
turning feeling into idea

effortless idea

D.E. Clark

Sometimes you let the words carry you. These can be powerful poems. But sometimes breaking down a poem to its basic parts can concentrate its meaning. I liken verse to seed. Lucky if it falls on fertile soil. I like this journey into the process of a poet's mind...
