THE WRITTEN WORD

Some writers write
for a living.

While others live
for their writing.

I just wish,
I could do both.

At the same time.

Alan, I believe that you do. I believe that we all do. Life and writing feed each other.

Not many writers can "earn their daily keep" through writing. Very few indeed. But writing (as poet Marianne Moore observed) helps us live. And living helps us write!

That's basically all. I value your perceptive poem!
