This poem was written for A Prompt Each Day, a daily dose of inspiration. For today’s prompt – we were given a phrase “Once Upon a time” to inspire our writing. This was a harder prompt than usual because it actually had a word limit – 33 words. I was fortunate enough that it actually completed on the 33rd word.
The Writer Weeps
Whenever words replace with silence
Weary hands release the pen
Without meaning – the writer weeps
Stalls his beating heart – and then
Once upon a time, is written
Prayer for words to come again.
