"Writing in Springtime" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on March 31, 2014

"Writing in Springtime"

Self employed

Paying my dues

Writing in the springtime on a rainy afternoon

Exploding off the ground

Liquid

Time, more valuable than money, equally abstract

How do you spend it?

What equation are you in?

What hand were you dealt?

Bitchslapped

But bitch I slap back

Piled my clocks high into a mountain

Climbed to the top then life took me by the ankles and shook the shit out of me

Green didn't mean a thing

Except in the meadows I visited

I had to use my imagination

Winters empty canvas

Cold, desolate and grey

Begging me to color it in with my pen

Dipping in the ink

Envisioning Spring sprung

Released into the wild

Full Sprint

Running back to what I used to be

Some thing I've always been

Getting buttered up by buttercups

Kissing my feet

Trouncing about

Developing clout

Heavy with doubt and guilt

Wearing a coat of white lead

It started to snow

Beautiful white pelts of pain

Piling up

Unrelenting

Snow men with seasonal depression lined our streets

Melt me first with a golden gamma ray of love

Self employed

Paying my dues

Piercing my ears and eyes with the rainy day blues

What's it like to write in Springtime?

I'm ready

I've been good

I deserve the sun

I deserve the sun

I deserve the sun

I deserve the sun

      Sounds like it has been Winter so long you almost can't remember what it's like to write in Spring. Well done, voted up Eric.

      I really never have, literally and figuratively.
