“What do I want?”

“What do I want?”

“What do we want?”

“A prompt!”

“When do we want it?”

“Now!”

“What will the prompt be?”

“Don’t know!”

“Why not?”

“Because that is how life is when you are having a conversation with yourself!”

“Oh.”

“What do I want… what do I really want?

hello? Anybody out there?”

A tumbleweed rolls sedately across my mind, then is gone.

“And another thing…” #Tanka

“And another thing…” #Tanka

Nope. Nothing else here;
Empty vessel; but, no noise;
Silence in buckets;
Which is in an abundance;
But, it’s too hot for dancing.

And another thing…
Why is the weather so mad;
It’s loop-the-loopy;
And shouldn’t this tanka rhyme?
Once, if not all of the time?

And another thing…
This tanka is much too short
By at least two lines.

“Oh, I see, it’s a haiku;
Well, that would explain it’s length.”

Stating the blooming obvious on a Sunday (#Haiku)

Stating the blooming obvious on a Sunday.

As it’s a Sunday
I have a little write time…
But, nothing happens.

No words flow at all;
And thoughts are far from working;
This means nothing writ.

So my apologies
For this blank piece of paper;
Better luck next time.

“What do ‘you’ do when your moose goes on strike?”

What do ‘you’ do when your moose goes on strike?
Do you bathe in past glories;
Go out for a hike?
Catch up on your reading;
Pay off all the bills?
Polish the furniture;
Mantles ‘and’ sills?’
Alphabetise your CDs;
Or chronologise them in years?
Phone up all your friends;
Invite them for beers?
Catch up on your sleep;
Those four million winks?
Or phone up some ‘other’ friends;
Invite ‘them’ for drinks?
Or tune up your harp;
Rehearse all your tunes?
Go off to the beach,
And lay amongst the dunes?

What do ‘you’ do
When your muse goes on strike?

I do this.

Writer’s Block (Haiku)

Tick-tock! Writer’s Block;
Paralysed, my brain is locked;
Which key will unlock?
