Unstable Realm

I take the words
and set them aside  

My prized cache

I sometimes file them
neatly  

Other days
they blend and fade  

Dissolving 

A brief glimpse  

They tantalize
with only
hints of what they
can become

I keep the case locked
guard them
hoard them  

Their opaque
existence
an unstable realm

*Words and phrases become treasures hoarded.  Seedlings for 
future poetry, writings.  These are so fleeting.  If I don’t 
immediately write them down, they are usually lost, gone forever.
