Unwritten magic

again, no water!

lips parched and dry

longing to sup dew from

a single leaf clinging to life

before its last disconnect.

concerned for her children,

she harangued customer service,

her rant lapsed on the weary.

come morning, the skies awakened

in fairytale fashion, cascading tears

from unwritten poems.

a dazzling performance

  12. Wow. I have no idea how you keep all of those prompts in your head at once. I can barely handle one! Your poem, IMHO, is art in its purest form.

  14. I feel your pain (and the unwritten poems). This year we’ve had a burst mains pipe, a broken boiler and frozen mains pipe. We can’t do without water!

  19. I think every moment is an unwritten poem… maybe we just have to accept that some poetry needs to be lived.
