READY FOR ACTION

I sit down in front of the computer;

My coffee cup is to my right,

pens and pencils and pads of paper

are to my left

and a stack of scribbled notes

are piled up on either side

with recipe cards scattered here and here

awaiting attention.

A bookcase is on the right

of my chair

offering dictionaries, thesauruses,

and a host of titles such as

CORRECT SPELLING MADE EASY

WORD POWER MADE EASY

HANDBOOK FOR WRITERS

WOMEN WHO LOVE BOOKS TOO MUCH

THE MOTHER TONGUE/ENGLISH & HOW IT GOT THAT WAY

THE POCKET BOOK OF QUOTATIONS  and

THE QUOTABLE COOK

Nearby are two more bookcases

filled with food related books,

books of poetry,

books on various topics

I have more at my fingertips than

many libraries have to offer and

I AM READY FOR ACTION.

Waiting, waiting,

for inspiration

for my muse to take charge

for an idea.

Maybe another cup of coffee

will help.
