Poem of the Week: Why Writing?

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.
If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.
The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “Why Writing?”.

And now for this week's poem:

Why Writing?

How strange our job
a sister writer said.

Firing up whole worlds
from words
packing them in pagination
between two covers
and a spine
(and now also into pixels
to be read online),
