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????

  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
