Writers Write, Right?

My greatest ideas come
while driving in the car
or just before I climb out of bed
to start my day.

They hit be just before
the phone rings or
my dog decides she needs
a walk right now.

I work through them
in my head at first
ordering the words perfectly
before I sit to write.

But then distraction
wipes the ideas away
and my motivation wanes
until I give up.

Writers write right?
They do not merely
leave their thoughts to die.
They cultivate wonder.

Perhaps I am not
the writer I imagined
or the visionary creator
of genius on paper.

Maybe I am simply
the idea person
who kick starts clever notions
for others to see through.
