herding a flock of words



doodling with words,
like organizing sparrows,
can seem unseemly…

wasting energy
squandering creative muse,
nonsensical phrases!

then the herd decides
to cooperate fully…
scatters like the wind.

fly, then re-alight anew,
–into charming formations

sometimes when a flock
decides that it likes you
the result:  a Haiku!
