Pinning down a dream (almost)

"Writing poems 
can be a way of 
pinning down a dream (almost); 
capturing a moment, 
a memory, a happening; 
and, at the same time, 
it's a way of sorting out 
your thoughts and feelings.  
the words tell you 
what you didn't know you knew."

 ~ Lillian Morrison,
in The Place My Words are Looking For

I love this description of writing poetry! It makes me want to grab a pen and notebook and go sit somewhere quiet where I can try to pin down a dream with my words. Have you ever felt this way about writing poems?
