This artist
Doesn’t doodle
And he rarely draws
He never kept
A sketchbook
A journal seems
Ideas shuttle
Through his mind
Waking him as
Now at times…
Breaking with
Tradition not
A problem
Nor going
The flow
It’s the process…

When untidy
Scraps of paper
Flutter from
His pockets
His thoughts
Will be seen
By others’ eyes…
You’ll be
In the know…
Or you wait
To see his
(He hopes)
His fully formed
Ideas revealed
I don’t doodle, but…
When I must, I draw
In my mind

      Thank you, Suzanne. Maybe I’m just not cut out to be an organized person, with all the “enthusiasms” I have. So it goes. (shrugs)
