My response to Poets United Midweek Motif: Beginnings

Susan has given us a whole range of images, saying and poems to help us ponder the question of ‘how to begin’, which she says has generated books upon books in every game and every field, and the answers are still not exhausted. 

Our Challenge is to write a new poem which traces a thing, event, or action back to its true or imagined beginnings.
