Poetry wants a day off (NPM ’16-Day 25)

25 Apr


Poetry wants a day off

Spring wind is chill today.
Words refuse to come out to play.
There seems to be nothing left to say.
It must be Monday.

The clock keeps ticking—no delay
The days creep on in their rigid array.
I will send my muse a fresh bouquet
for a better poem on Tuesday.

    Sending flowers to your muse — what a great idea! Everyone seems to expect the muse to show up, at will, day after day, with no tokens of appreciation or anything. 🙂

      Thanks, Tabatha! This morning I awoke with a poem idea, so she must have liked those flowers *grin.*
