Pour My Soul on Paper –

A NaisaiKu Invitation


Images fall forth,

Concepts clash behind the eyes.

What comes after that?

POUR MY SOUL ON PAPER.

What comes after that?

Concepts clash behind the eyes.

Images fall forth.


Dreaming trumps reason.

His purpose propels my pen,

Like live water spilled.

POUR MY SOUL ON PAPER.

Like live water spilled,

His purpose propels my pen.

Dreaming trumps reason.


Hide the blunt scissors.

Cast aside the pen of red.

Confuse and confound.

POUR MY SOUL ON PAPER.

Confuse and confound.

Cast aside the pen of red.

Hide the blunt scissors.


Transported afar,

Take a road trip of the mind,

Vital, though scary.

POUR MY SOUL ON PAPER.

Vital, though scary,

Take a road trip of the mind,

Transported afar.

  1. Hi Linda, I like the common title POUR MY SOUL ON PAPER which speaks volumes in itself.

    Clever use of the prompt(s) as ever, and I think my fave is the last one - 'take a road trip of the mind' right up my street!
