That Melancholy Feeling

My pen hesitates……
waiting for the inspiration.
Like a rusty engine.

Sputtering, and skipping….
not knowing,
where it’s hand ….
will lead it.

Standing on my patio,
with soft light and shadows…..
and,
“Maxine,” in the background.

Solitude…..
the chirping of crickets,
and the humming of water frogs.

The house is empty…..
the kids playing in the front yard,

While I relinquish myself……..

to the chirping and shadows,
of my backyard.

The pen, is gathering steam,
and,
my mind is………..
drifting.
What a perplexing moment,
that lasts a lifetime.
