Writers Workshop


spacious room filled with silence
imaginary mind's guidance
stave off intense subsidence

seconds and hours seem the same
search for warmth of a burning flame
offered in words without shame

re-filled fountain pen scratches
frail thesaurus paper crackles
missing words causing hackles

pictures of unknown figures
music of equal characters
writing poet's private lectures

few words build a small mirror
readers' mind reflecting clearer
poets' pictures sneaking nearer
