When the Muse Takes vacation

The hardest part of all,
As every artist finds,
Is when the paper stares back
With a blank expression
And this Cathode Ray Tube
Of your so-called mind
Fades to black.




Each week on Sunday the Monkey Man gives a challenge to write a poem in only 160 characters. Like writing a tweet – it takes some doing to convey thought in so few words. Come join the fun!

And yet we always find a way to fill the paper. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.
