Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

Sonnet X

Sonnet X


The first table, with a view of the street,

patiently waiting for inspiration

to join me at the table’s empty seat,

I create space in my isolation.

I have often wondered if writing must

be a solitary pursuit for me.

Perhaps the process needs that kind of trust,

but poetry demands community.

I’ve tried to deny I need anyone

for validation, or even support,

and perhaps I do not, but connections

should be treasured, not seen as last resorts.

So I am learning to give and receive,

in the power of words, I still believe.
