Litter

Litter

A Poem by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Ramblings.

"
​Half-finished paintings,
​New moon nights.

Dew drop mornings,
ugly shapes and shrill voices.

Piles and piles of litter,
sentences too foreign 
to make any sense;

my words don't sound sane 
anymore ...

i have gone through these periods more often than not....wanting to burn everything i have written...
feeling it is all a sham...just junk...
litter....and as you so aptly put it, Yumna, "ugly shapes and shrill voices"
you haven't been around for a bit, and it is really good to read you again.

I just feel aimless in terms of writing lately and am not sure if what I write really holds that pow.. read more

It's actually pretty good considering most of the crap on this site.

I can relate. I have too many writing projects that seemed good for a while....then nothing happened with them. I hate that, but I've got to work too. 😟

boy can i relate Doc! well said ... can be so frustrating when we have such a desire to express .. creatively and succinctly ..as you do, do so well! I go through my litter from time to time and just shake me nog at how I ever thought it was so "brilliant" when i jotted it down ... so like all good litter .. into the trash it goes ... but once in a while something will speak to me and can be used ... love on ya Doc! sure glad you are around the Cafe' :)

Time always winds us down to something less than it was before. Age will always betray us and our taste and zest for life will follow suit. It starts at an early age if you let it, but we can delay the inevitable for a time if we're clever enough. I think the key is to always be searching... for something, no matter that is, always be searching. You don't need the answers to keep asking questions... there doesn't have to be a point.

Save those scraps of paper; your muse is only in absence and you will need those seemingly fruitless scribblings on her return. I have file on file of notes, some over two decades old; they will probably never see the light of day, but, you never can tell...

Been there - very frustrating indeed - but then again you have poetically expressed yourself very well here! Tell you what - I'll give you a word that you can muse over and produce a work of art!! :-)

The word is: Petrichor

Uh-OH, Dear Yumna!

I can't begin to imagine how many artistic writers have had these "ramblings" rumbling through their heads at one time or another … in my case, at least a zillion; or, so it seems.
Before your time and the computer, I can recall when I actually used a pen and paper to compose my poems, and you'd be amazed at how may wadded sheets littered the floor before I finally got it right … so, I literally understand and empathize with what you've figuratively titled this virtual little masterpiece in homage to, frustration.

Truth is, I watched your poetic dexterity grow and improve from novice to revered, skilled poetess, composing in many forms and genre over the years (fondly, even taught you a few), and there is no one I have been more impressed by and pleased with, than You.

KUDOS for another excellent original piece from your brilliant ink … thank you for the really neat treat, "Dear Poetess"
With a Happy Tuesday smile! ⁓ Richard 🍃

Beautiful, melancholia. Rich and sad but beautiful to see both you and read you.

Thank you my good friend. I hope you have been extra well in turn.
Sometimes there is inspiration in the litter... somehow.

'Dew drop mornings' - lovely phrase.

Thank you so much for appreciating, Jibey :))
Most writers would understand this, especially the litter on the floor after a long night. Unfinished and cast off poems. It is easy to lose your voice when you start doubting yourself. You have been missed Dr Y and it is good to see a post from you. It is temporary, believe me. All good wishes.
