No poetry

The cascade of words is faithless and there is no poetry in me.
The tides of life are turning; slack water
makes a fissure in my late-come torrent of creativity.
Droplets here and there, no more than three-line stanzas
of seventeen  syllables not worth the writing.
I scan the scenery for magic, melody or fire
but the veil remains, misty, a camouflaged cage.
It won’t free me to dance.

  1. I can’t like it because it’s too melancholy.

    You’re stagnating from swimming too hard in a sea of prompts. Take a break!

    I can identify with this, and find it very beautiful!

    Poets do this all the time. Write about not writing.But this is raw as gem:

    I scan the scenery for magic, melody or fire
    but the veil remains, misty, a camouflaged cage.

    Take a few deep breaths. And let what ever flows, flow.
    Just enough words, always…just enough – more than enough to state what was necessary.
    Well done, Viv!


  6. And in this No Poetry somehow the art still sings…I love the way you used the cage and veil to express emotion and state of being. I enjoyed this, Viv. 🙂
