perched like a gargoyle
guardian of verse
the wordsmith
tinkers
placing each delicate
syllable
with surgical precision

her smudged spectacles
magnify minute moments
the wordsmith
crafts
balancing form and function
by soldering sturdy structure

silent
only her pen speaks
whispering to the page
the wordsmith
dabbles
placing and replacing
gems in each line
maximizing brilliance
