This woke me up at 1:00 in the morning. And so, I write. *Yawn!*
The easier writing is,
the harder it becomes:
was it that long ago when
words fell like dominoes
in measured patterns of verse?
Now, they clog up the pen
and staunch creativity
unless I threaten them
within an inch of their lives ...
a writer's dilemma.
And the harder writing is,
the easier it gets:
the words flow like quicksilver,
a flood I can't contain
(not that I'd want to stop them);
some of them are happy,
others are angry or sad;
the question I must ask:
are they worthy to be read?
A writer's dilemma.
(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

|Karla, I've found the same to be true. The more I write, the more my own demands of that writing climb upward and upward... surely the process we are meant to take.

Such a pickle to be in; but...isn't it fun when inspiration hits and then your muse goes into overdrive?? You are a master poetess, and you deserve to be recognized for your expounding talents! BRAVA!!

|They are worthy to be written, that is what matters. No matter the words, there is someone who is searching to find them.

|Certainly a question most of us ask at some point. Good write. R|

|Thank you for this truthful piece, Karla.
Very well done. I enjoyed.
|Reviewed by Kate Clifford
|The question you ask, "Are they worthy to be read?" is a question I have delt with time and time again in both the writing and art world. The answer that touched me as a truth is: If you have been gifted with a thought or an image it is meant to be shared. We do not always understand what we are recieving from above :-) We are but a tool in the masterplan :-)|

|Since many of us will read them, I'd say they are very worthy, Karla.
And getting up at 1 AM to write is really fun, isn't it??!!!!
(Mine's usually 2AM now; I'm getting lazy in my old age, I guess.)

|Ah Karla, what an excellent poem you have written here, and Yes they are so worthy to be read! Love your pen here!
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|... and with questions, questions and dilemmas always to write about, your pen will NEVER run dry - tell it you need some sleep sometimes, though! :)) Get a duvet-cover that is tolerant of ink and is a good washer and your problem will be solved - not even having to get out of bed. Trouble is readin it in the morning... yeah, I am only just starting to realise that the "simplest"-seeming constructions are probably the ones over which we agonise the most. Pertinent and well-argued as usual, dear Scribe. LOL sKribbler Kate xx|

|Ah, Karla, if you write 'em,, they are worthy of some old guy like me reading them and usually liking those words very much.|
