Poem: Writing

Back to back
The keys clatter
The words express
And nothing matters
The cactus by the window
Now turns to face the sun
The cat purrs as light escapes
Before the day is done
So writing and yet writing still
We express the thoughts inside
To continue on this journey
And let the words defeat our pride
The edge of authors roam beyond
The sense of wonder in what we write
The human spirit still does define
Our souls in black and white
