Finding Water

Walking through this desert
baren reaches
of my mind

Before me
on my desk
a sharp fat pencil
an open notebook
its blank pages staring up at me.

My chair is comfortable
the winter sun
floods my room
with sunlight

No words
come through
these empty places
in my mind
Buried deep
waiting for spring rain
to blossom
and flourish

Those unspoken dreams
the unmet expectations
the deepest longings
of my soul

I squirm
and wiggle
waiting for
inspiration

Looking out the window
I search the sky for clouds
for rain clouds

Rain with healing moisture
longed for moisture
rain to heal this thirsty soil

The landscape all around
is baren
where are the drops
of morning dew

Water
streams of water
flowing fresh
with inspiration

Searching
I am searching
Is it there?

Joy
anticipation
the hope
the dream of
Finding Water

I considered participating but have too much on my plate to do it justice. You've made a beautiful beginning.

I know that feeling of squirming in my seat waiting for inspiration - and to liken it to waiting for rain, is also very apt. Beautiful writing.

I like your poem very much--and I like the feeling of new beginnings, so appropriate with spring around the corner.
