Incubation - Poem 8

This is really true of my process. I check in first thing in the morning to see the daily prompt. All day, my mind whirls with thoughts. Today I kept chasing my tail. Is it about the “chicken and the egg”? Is it about the repeating cycle of life and rebirth? I was giving up, it just wasn’t there. Suddenly, it drew breath. Thanks again to Bud the Teacher’s blog for today’s inspiration.


Life hides within the shell
Fragile, delicate, just
A hairsbreadth away from destruction

Ideas lurk within my mind
Dancing, twisting
Teasingly just out of grasp

Nourish with gentle warmth
Or blazing fire (if dragons you seek)

Step back quickly and
A miracle bursts free
