Creative Insomnia #WWUC @NWCreativeUnion


The moon melts.
The stars wink.
The clock ticks.

Ink stained fingers
travel from pen to keyboard.

Scribbles are transcribed
in a cursor’s chase
on white light.

A poet’s night is
as long as her muse’s
dance among the alphabet.

Natasha Head at New Word Creative Union prompted us to write on our nights in the creative manner of our choice. I chose to write mine since that is what I do most every night :)  Night Calls #WWUC @NWCreativeUnion

This is exactly right: "as long as her muse’s dance among the alphabet."

Fine poetry.

very cool Susie. So perfectly penned, really capturing that essence here. The J. B. accompaniment was a nice treat as well. Thanks

Lovely and lilting--it is dancing through my head along with visions of sugar plums--
i am also creative at night--it is called "dreaming"

Simple, yet on target. You've captured the experience well. Nicely done.

Appreciate the addition of James Brown! Wonderful.
