Day 16

             Writers' Block

This poem is about a writers' block

Images fleeting but not concrete

Playing hide and seek, hard to unlock

To write in triplets without conceit

And hope to conclude with a quatrain

Leads towards an erratic heartbeat.

The pattern and meter is engrain

Villanelle, terza rima hybrid

How do I wipe my cheeks of tear stain

Help! Oh help! to get the poem crafted

One quatrain and five three-line stanza

In the sauce of iambics blended.

The recipe for coca cola

Hidden but to the chosen, in form

Goat cheese and arugula on pizza

I have tried but I cannot reform

Terzanelle, it may someday knock

On my door, but till then it feels warm

Creating in a comatose shock!
