Morning sun beams through slats.
Windows open and salt air wafts.
Alone with first cup of coffee.
She sits clearing webs of sleep.
Dreamcatcher sways banishing phantoms.
Stained glass casts rainbows to glimpse.
Hard drive hums and issues it's call.
While dark blue eyes gaze at walls.
Van Gogh's art does inspire.
And photos also fuel her fire.
Grandfather clock ticks in corner.
Transcending minutes into hours.
Fingers poised on keys her mind sparks.
She runs towards the light from the dark.
Even though she's not written of late.
It felt like years but was only days.
This writer's voice hindered felt so empty.
At last the famine is over and I feel free.

WOW Carol...
Have you been reading my mind? I have been here before, time and time again. Feeling hopeless, wondering if what I write would be worthy to be read by others. Then this blank abyss takes a hold of me sinking its teeth deep into the artist in me, chewing and spitting out what I think is lost remnants. Then there is THAT MOMENT.........
The one between space, time, thoughts transform into words and I can write again.
This is such a good write, I read your blog and commented on it as well. Knowing your morning routine now, I see you better and feel this poem.
Carol YOU are a good writer, I have read most of your postings. Glad you are my neighbour in lit.
Thanks for this glimpse into your daily sunrise!!

My best to you,

Keep the flow
Hi there! I'm glad the famine is over. It's so important to use your voice.

There is a nice imagery to your writing. An understanding of emotion in time. You're a story teller.

Oh, and my 'lil baby is wonderful! Finally, something that lives up to it's expectation:):)

Take care

Oh to write
Is there anything else so wonderful? I cannot say enough about the imagery in this piece. I feel as though you are describing me. Very nice job. Stunning, in fact.
