Too Busy For National Poetry Month: Time To Write

Last year I was able to write several new poems, but this year I am so busy with my heavy course load that I barely had time to take a quick vacation to Berlin.  So, this year, I will Re-post my poems.

Here is the first one that is as true today as it was the day I wrote it.

 Time To Write 

Have you ever noticed?

when profound thoughts come to mind
when that moment of lucidity strikes
when you are emotionally charged
when your fingers desire to
flick across those intimate plastic keys—

a hindrance to
fulfilling the desire—

the world works according to—
its own time
its own needs
its own demands

I have just these five minutes before I –
bend to the will of the clock
demands of my life
commitments I have made

at this moment I want
to let my thoughts escape
a brimming brain—

to find their way
from cortex to finger tips
where they are free

Buzzz!!!

the timer tells me
to force my thoughts
into tidy boxes
to wait—

for time,
