Writer’s Block

06 Oct

What do you think of prompts?

I know you are a picture

Not a seed from within

But an elephant digitized

An elephant that can fly

To jungles without.


I know I am a poet

Surrendering to the page

Begging the prompt

To complete my definition

Of me.

    Do you always try to respond to prompts? I don’t! I always need that seed within to correspond and coincide before I acquiesce or surrender.

    the picture and the prompt become seeds within, or maybe water what’s already inside?

    either way, nice, thanks neel 😉

    Well I wrote about the writer with the writer’s block Shaista…..that was my theme and how the writer responds to this prompt or couldn’t. Definitely need the seed to acquiesce….thanks for stopping by!
