Poetry Fragment

So, you may be curious how I write poetry.  First I will say that I have no idea how other people write poetry.  Second, I write poetry based largely on what I call poetry fragments.  They are kernals of thought that I jot down and then hone over time into something I find more and more aesthetically pleasing.  I liken it to sharpening something to a fine point or edge.

This is the fragment I started on a few days ago:

Passing the jumbled timberline, / Eating ice in my breath.

I am St. Jerome, / In my righteous solitude.
