Poem with an explanation: The Shadow Moth

The Shadow Moth

While trying to think of a poem,
the shadow moth flew by,
and there was the idea.

This poem is a poem about writing a poem.  While a poem for this post was being considered, a moth flew by in a window and cast a shadow that moved.  Seeing the moth’s shadow, while attempting to write a poem for this post, inspired the poem for the post.  In some ways, there is a circular aspect to the poem, in that thinking of the poem, partially led to the poem.
