Whimsical mind


A writing pad, pen and pencil

are lying ready on my table

I won’t sleep tonight,

write a story or a fable


A cup of hot tea on my desk

I sit on a chair

I have other thoughts

But for the time I don’t care


I must write something

be whatever that may

and finish it off nicely

before beginning of next day


Everyone is fast asleep

Only clock’s ticking I can hear

I close my eyes, think what to write

The concept is coming clear


The wind blows, windows rattle

with the sound of thunder

I jump up from my chair

And then I start to wonder


Is it the right time to write

Or should I be in bed

Have a good night sleep

And write tomorrow instead?


Rain comes and pours

Lightning I can see

A chilly night, best place is bed

Well where else it could be ?


So I am off to bed

with sudden change in plan

I would rather write tomorrow

Or as soon as I can


May be I shall have a dream

a new concept I shall find

A lot better than what tonight

I have in my mind

I like this, Kamalesh. Very well done. Good use of rhyme without delving into cliche.
