The Witch’s Cauldron


cauldron1The Witch’s Cauldron

A writer is a witch’s cauldron,
full of toil and trouble.
And as a poem comes to mind,
the pot begins to bubble.

It starts out as a single thought,
rising to the surface.
Then faster, faster they roil up,
til all boils at a purpose.

When it is finished, the story told,
you’ve no more to do.
The battle settled, your reward won,
until it starts anew.
