February Haiku Challenge – 28

Listen to stillness
absorb quiet through your pores,
feel the creation
come alive
slowly release
your awakened words.
Set free the imagery
of thoughts buried in your soul,
give them freedom upon the page;
let them rage and play games with the pen,
until your heart’s blood replaces the ink.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
