Inward

You cannot find a tale inside?
You think it’s ’cause you’re empty now?
Or is it that you cannot see?
Or is it you’ve forgotten how?

The form, the space, the mood, the tale –
It’s all in there for you to find.
If form and space and mood you have,
A tale cannot be far behind.

Go inward, inward, inward still.
See further than your furthest view.
Remember, making circles small?
Your breakthrough is your baseline new.

And then, relax. Exhale. Emerge.
Remove your self and pick your pen.
Whatever rises, jot it down.
Repeat till you can write again.
