The Well Is Dry

I have no more poems;
The well has just gone dry.
I cannot write a thing
No matter how I try.

Reminds me of Big Well Kansas, the greatest (only?) tourist trap in that state. It was 32 feet in diameter, and had a winding staircase going down. I think it was wood at the time. We went part way, but got spooked and came up.

a lovely poem, which captures in essence a poet's nightmare. Am glad the river of poetry continues to flow through.
