I should have wrote a poem today
I did start on a couple of thoughts
but I didn’t get very far with them
my mind was just not ready to work
to try and find those perfect words
that would make it all a poem
one of those clever poems
that speak to the human condition
and can change the hearts of many
but today, I’m just not there
the words are like roaches
that scatter when the light is shed.
So, I didn’t write a poem today
I sat, I read, I jotted notes
but no poetry was written today.
