Block (blog) Again

Words find no place in my heart
smashed pumpkins kindle no desire
for poems to breath on my blog
stories of joy and sorrow have forgotten
to appear on my page
I hang on the smoke of vague ideas
hoping to rejuvenate love for a dead man
in folktales to see his ghost
in the ruins of the past
where he avenged the death of his love
to feel heaven in spring
and I am still counting sheep

Counting sheep
two gates
first gate open
count and second gate
open into the barn
no
I lose count;
one entrance
count and into the barn
no
they run too fast;
lead them one by one
into the barn
no
this takes time;
I will let them jump the fence
count and into the barn
no
some jump too low
get stuck in the fence;
frustrated
it’s been hours;
shall I lead them
to the slaughter-house?
no
they look at me with sad eyes
guilt gets me there;
I open my eyes
it is morning already
yawn
