Writing, rewriting..

Writing is rewriting

Of stories lived

Emotions experienced

Making tangible

nebulous thoughts

Stringing together

words and phrases

Scattered in the mind

Into sentences on paper

*

Writing is rewriting

Reviewing, revising

Scratching off lines

Tearing off pages

Deleting documents

Absorbing the first draft

Distilling core elements

Repurposing words

Reframing sentences

Tweaking ideas

Morphing the narrative

*

Writing is rewriting

Each page reflecting

Pages of content

Rough, messy drafts

Chaotic paragraphs

The embers of which

Light up the new fire

Burning bright in coherence

Coalescing, to make sense

Revised, refurbished

The final presentation

Ready, the book written

The first draft forgotten…
