the art of writing

i once thought writing was something special
which meant the one doing the writing was special
i felt the same way about painting
creators were different
above utilitarian pursuits such as carpentry or making money
even above raising a family

age may not bring wisdom
but it does bring some insights
i've long lived for the ahha moment
only to realize i've already had a number of them

a lot of them took place in painting
a lot during writing
and as many in raising a family
building a house that lasts
making the perfect joint

all my writing amounts works toward building the perfect joint
fitting two things together so that they are seamless
at least to me
i offer my writing in that sense
