DRY SPELL

possibly a common

metaphor

frequently used

colloquialism

however one

characterizes

it

lately I have

been going through

A DRY SPELL

while writing not

that I have nothing

to say

my fingertips

struggle over

keys

no longer responding

to their caress

my pen has ceased

scrawling

across coffee-stained

pages

waiting to be abused

by droplets of verbiage

held prisoner as

ambivalence

assails

BUT WAIT

do

I feel winds

bringing change?

We’ll see
