Staring at a blank screen

Fingers hovering expectantly

Over the hungry keyboard

Awaiting the spark of creativity


My fingers flutter in mid-air

The screen is a virgin white

The frustration builds within me

As daytime turns to night


Darkness beckons from my window

The moon shining white on high

My desk strewn with emptied coffee cups

My creativity has gone awry


Sweat soaked, head in hands

Fingers curled tight in hair

Trying to pull an idea free

For a new poem winsome and fair


Finally, dazed and confused

With my mind at last set free

My fingers alight on the keyboard

And dance without thought from me


I go to bed fulfilled

In the early hours of the morn

The screen virgin white no more

My creativity adorned


I sleep a restful sleep

After my imagination ignited

Amid dreams of recognition for a job well done

For a new poem into this world invited
