This Poet’s Pen

one day this poet’s pen will cease to write
the well of ink within it will run dry
no more black ink upon this page of white
that day I’ll lay this pen down with a sigh

one day this pen won’t have the strength to rhyme
it won’t write metaphors or metric feet
I do not know the day nor know the time
its ink will cease to flow upon this sheet

I simply know that this is what will be:
the day will come to lay aside this pen
what lies beyond that moment, who can see?
but somehow I am sure I’ll write again

for then a pen of endless ink I’ll hold
to write my poems upon the streets of gold

Napowrimo 2018 – Day 3

At NaPoWriMo.net, we have been encouraged to make a list poem of “made up titles”. Here’s mine:

A List Poem of Imagined Movie Titles Based on Stuff Strewn Across My Desk

Adventure Pics like “My Blue Pen” are rarely ever shown
‘Cause most folk prefer comedies like “Staplers That I’ve Known”
“My Calculator Glows with Glee” is showing all this week:
(a foreign film with subtitles, but all the talk is Greek)
“Green Highlighter”: a thriller film will keep you up at night
but if you prefer romance, then see “Paper Sheets of White”
My fav’rite flick I’ve seen all year is “Six Line Telephone”
it is a documentary that stars one Sly Stallone
Of course, there is “My Desk’s a Mess” – a true biography
you wonder who it is about? Well clearly, it’s ’bout Me!
