Writer's Lament

Fingers tap at keys, without rhythm, to find words,
Trying to tell the story, capture the poem,
Struggling to add meaning to a phrase or two.

The hand scribbles with a pen a stumble of letters
Pulling at the thread of an idea
Untwisting the scrambled jumble of the mind.

The writer, heart in hand, soul in need, mind in fog,
Struggles to grasp the wisp of words whispered by the muse
In a whirlwind of thought during the rumbling roller coaster of life…

...and put them on the page.
