New Composition Underway

Sketches for a new piece are currently underway. It is a suite and deals with a very specific subject matter. It's baffling me right now. The third movement's melody, changes and groove are solid. The first movement has inspired material that relates to four specific text phrases and therefore, melodic phrases and is harmonically odd. I'm trying to put on my "logical thinking cap" but so far, no luck. The second movement...I think will fall into place. In the oscillating inner dialogue that usually consists of "I'm a genius...I'm an idiot" i'm in the "idiot" stage. Hope the "answer" reveals itself in short order...there are only four more weeks of summer to make formidable progress.
