Returning Words

Open eyes resist seeing.
Brain resists moorings.
Slightest motion, even soft noises
are most unwelcome today.
Thoughts have nothing to say.

With time and ibuprofen
throbbing dulls to non-existence.
Fogged ideas come in to focus.

Muse returns to chat me up.
We soar on the winds of
possibilities, of poetry.
Once again, words
come clear for me
to write them.
