The Bard’s Prayer

Karen Robiscoe dba CHARRONs CHATTER
My work has lived

and I tire, now

My stairway to heaven

—extra long—

sweat dripping into

half-open eyes
and feeling the burn

devils on escalators

flying by

the backpack I wear

will have to be checked at the door

I’m pretty sure,

but the

gospel I coded

might allow

  1. sooo true but, such a temporal outllok, Completely different view from how Victor Hugo sees evaluates his writing ! Faithfully always ~Debbie

  2. Now, this is a piece, I would love to come by and read again, again and again…Ticks me ready, sets my mood right…Refreshing!!!

    • Hi Deba! This is an anthem for every writer, I think–artists, too. It takes so much out of one to create, doesn’t it? And the rewards so few and far between. Super great to cyber see u. 🙂
