Thirty Days #30 Poem a Day

Thirty Days

 

Thirty days

I’ve sat at the keyboard

 

attempting to put my voice on paper,

to write something,

anything, to be heard.

 

My shout translates to a whimper

and fingers become mute

while letters form unintelligible words

 

and nonsense dribbles from my digits.

Still, I continue to strike at keys

 

unwilling to relinquish

my emancipation.

Congratulations!

 

I like that "fingers become mute" bit. Poetry, now read, silenced by not-writing instead of silenced by not-speaking (when poetry was mainly oral). Neat.

 

Tuckered out now?

A nice work to sum it up. You seem not to go long between your own pieces, anyway. I think the challenge of the committment, itself, helps to make this difficult, at times. You've done quite well and I am impressed that you completed it.

 

But, HURRAH! Back to that which moves you, yes?
