A Poet’s Surprise

and there it was
buried in the midst of hundreds, 
or thousands,
of others

after searching
for what seemed like hours or days,
maybe weeks,
it screamed

Hey! Here I am!
I have been waiting for some time,
some long time,
to be found


onto the page
it jumped, landing where it belonged;
just the next
perfect word
