Broken, poem by C.E.K.Nelson, illustration by author

All artists experience this more than once, yet always wondering if the wing will heal this time and be strong enough to carry the weight of the imagination when the force of realities gravity pulls so strong.

BROKEN

Inspiration expired.

Drained.

the broken wing

grounds flight.

One feathered extremity

is not enough

to support

the imagination’s migration

to fruition.

Petty desires,

ceases,

exhausted

by words wasted,

artfully crafted

strokes,

scribbles.

Colorful voices,

not seen,

gone

is the infinite hope,

the determination to fly.
