Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction

The following is a piece of writing submitted by Laura on January 11, 2009

Show, don't tell

I cannot show the feelings as produced by wondrous sights
of mountain peaks unfolding, or of mighty birds in flight.
I cannot tell you just how much my heart wells up with awe
when sunlight first awakens or when winter meets its thaw.
Yet if it were quite possible to stealthily transpose
these wonders to a single verse of heptametric prose,
I still would feel as though I'd lost it all in the translation -
experience is still the greatest way to view creation.
