Gotto say I am absolutely sorry.
It’s been about a week since I’ve updated stuff here. But I was under a total time crunch – with my board exams coming up and things. And I also had to re-erect this blog that I had diminished to ruins.
So, here I am now, another NaPoWriMo poem after long. Not one of my best – but whatever time yields, I guess. *Shrugs*
Also, total lack of the inspiration to write – I think the poem pretty much explains that. but hoping to get back into the groove and at least hoist the flag for the last week, gloriously.
TO THE MISSING MUSE
I feel the resistance as I hike up the desert
Of endless barrenness laid white ‘fore me,
Cold wets the ground, my seeking feet,
With no answers for its musing call.
Oh, what songs do I wring of winter woods?
Where wonted deeps lie withering beneath-
Melodies strung on a dynamic day,
Hibernate beneath tranquil white sheets.
Silence inside my minds stirs,
So of silence alone now I could sing;
Where goblets with fiery flavor filled
with imagination, now dregs remain.
I taste the blizzard in the wind
That flows from yonder distances.
But flaring passions in my mind
Sleep like oceans within a shell.
Arctic wolves sniff for artistry
But where’s the fragrance of sweet songs? –
I can’t hear my winter hymn,
So of this bleakness can I sing?
I am inviting you all to join me in this venture. Use the prompt given above to craft your own verses.
And oh, be sure to tag me.
