The Swell

The swell swirls excitations, back and forth, up and down, in and through my soul.  It never sits.  It always stands.  It dances every dance.

The swell inspires reflective thoughts, intriguing ideas, desires to write what bleeds.  It’s an intense crave.  It’s challenging.  It calls writers by name.

The swell fuels innovation to be curious, pursue discovery, uncover a mystery.  It’s a passion.  It’s plausible.  It’s peaked intensity.

The swell knows orientations trend for relatable topics, catchy phrases, known writers.  It’s open mic night!  It’s now or never.  It’s fright or flight.
