Wrestling Writing Haiku

 

Wrestling Writing Haiku 

I’m not feeling it

  so I’m not writing today!

Back to bed I go.

No inspiration – 

  my fairy lights don’t sparkle.

My prompt well ran dry. 

No motivation – 

  my brain feels tired and lazy.

I’d rather not think.

I’m not feeling it

  so I’m not writing today!

Back to bed I go.

I’m capping my pen –

  no need to waste any ink

when words just won’t come.

I’m closing my book – 

  keeping journal pages blank

for another day.

I’m not feeling it

  so I’m not writing today!

Back to bed I go.

I pull back the sheets

  to settle back in the warmth

and turn off my thoughts.

But they’re not water.

  They don’t stop with a knob twist.

They keep on flowing.

I’m feeling awake.

  I can’t go back to sleep now.

I need to get up. 

Leaky thought plumber?

  There’s no such miracle fix –

My brain mouth won’t hush. 

A conversation

  between me, myself, and I 

is unstoppable.

I’m feeling awake.

  I can’t go back to sleep now.

I need to get up. 

The struggle is real.

  Inspiration comes in the 

unlikeliest ways. 

….uncapping my pen 

  ….opening my journal page

and the ink now flows……

I’m writing today.

  I tried to wrestle writing

…it unrested me.
