Work in Progress

I woke up this  morning with the beginnings of  a poem in my head, well, not just like that, it didn’t come to me in a dream or anything, more like I  was lying in bed this morning thinking about what I should write next and that is a very good time of day for me re creative thought.  First I thought ‘Well, I should make it something like a  double dactyl, because that’s a rhyme scheme I like very much, it’s fast, it’s energetic, but I don’t like sticking to it too strictly because it’s really hard (sort of like this diet, but I’m actually not doing too badly), so I was thinking, like, da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da sooner or later, and that was the first line, sooner or later, but it will probably go somewhere in the middle and then gradually the idea grew and some key elements are the double helix of the DNA and how that’s a spiral and how a forward pass in American football is a spiral motion, and a spiral staircase also, so there’s a connection between American football, spiral staircases, and DNA, and somewhere ‘Stairway to Heaven’ fits in there, and the overall idea is that all in the universe is connected (the lesser, the greater and sooner or later da da da da da da da da da da da, but it takes time, it takes time not only to understand the universe but even to perceive it, so that’s as far as I’ve got, will work on it this weekend.  Peace out.
