When I look for the best ones needed for a situation, they will come. Often, though, after far too much time has passed to use them to any effect.
If I attempt solitude, I can assure you that they will come, and fast and furious.
The right ones will come at the wrong time. And the wrong ones…
They hover, menacingly, when I most need to swallow them down.
They scatter and float just out of reach, when I most need to push them out.
And sometimes, I it’s a grace to write them down in honor of the thoughts behind them.
But always, always, I can count on my words to speak for themselves.
When they are good and ready.
