Word Games

It's not that the words won't come.
It's that they won't stop.

They chase each other around in my head
like kittens around a couch.
I never know when one will pounce
demanding my full attention
only to be nudged aside by another
squirming to take its place.

I see each newborn idea
take its first steps
standing tall
stretching out
reaching wide
gathering others in to join the party.

And there they go around the couch again
inviting me to come and play.
