My Blog Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo #13-Time Progression, A Writers Timeline

NaPoWriMo – National Poetry Writing Month

This poem work me up this morning, so I hope you enjoy it while I try to get back to sleep! 


Time Progression, A Writers Time-line:


spelling bee’s

compositions and calligraphy


research papers

poetic capers

all nighters

at the diner

face pressed flat against the page

reciting altered realities on a white hot stage


working professional

the dream still sings

stealing time

a creative’s crime

love don’t mean a thing


writing, thinking

scribbling, drinking

self enclosure

business deals now ensue

one main goal

global exposure

structure and contracts have now taken over


longing sets in

the focus


the sweetest thing i’ve ever heard


nursery rhymes

hey diddle diddle

dr seuss

duck duck goose


you started this love affair

just syllables and phrases




publication can never spoil the brew

taint the magic

nor erase the belief i have in you
