Before the thought comes to mind

On a tweet
in a response to two friends
both writers
I replied

Writing is the thinking
before the thought comes to mind.

I hadn't thought that thought before
I didn't prepare it
before committing it to Twitterland

It came out
as a response
to others' thought

impregnated by others' words
nurtured in the womb of the brain
and born as new words

words without self-conscious preparation

and this too
these words
are also the thinking
before the thoughts come to mind.
