Writer's Nightmare - Poem by Tribhawan Kaul

(Senryu+ an etheree+ free verse + senryu)

fearing cloudburst
dejection takes over

full of
to dress pages
in shades, shapes, colour
watching disappearing images.
My laptop, which used to dance
on ITs tunes now have sunstroke
doctors advise open heart surgery
Can't afford as I am totally broke.

Enjoy the off season
and a long break
in this state
or refill pen
as paper mercifully
reconsidering another date.
Laptop quarantined
write on good old forgotten paper,
in one hand Parker or pencil
in another marker and eraser.

Missing a mate
worst nightmare
writer's fate.

    this is a great series of forms. Oh the problems of the writer are numerous. But the old pen and paper are always at the ready. (Report) Reply
