Late Night Writing #Amwriting #poetry


candle

Where were you …

when I lit the waxy wick

at 3 am

unrolled the parchment

that resisted and cracked

*

Where were you

when I inked my quill

container upended

and spilled

not so deftly I protected my craft

*

Where were you

when the words ran so fast

then flowed

into the sea with a crash

truly buoyant for a raft

*

where were you

when my head came to rest

fingers not faintly stained

sleepy head messed

asleep before I hit the rack

Where were you

?

No matter the era when you are awakened by an idea, you stumble to your desk, try to find a light, write down the words before you lose them.

It’s almost 9 am and my words are dozing… “YAWN”

What’s your best time for writing????

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hello Moonduster I love these words of yours and an evocative picture too. Well I may be in my 60’s but find still being awake at 3 am the norm…. unfortunately not due to partying (smiles). But this is my writing time it turns out on my android or notebook. Still a newbie writer of my thoughts and becoming more focused. You are prolific and I enjoy your posts very much. Best to you Maximum
