Sometimes It’s Better to Read Than Write - a Poem for Day Seven of PAD

The prompt for day seven of PAD to write a discovery poem:

This poem could be about making a discovery; it could be about something discovered (by someone or something else); or something you’d like to discover. I can’t wait to discover what new poems poets will create.

Sometimes It’s Better to Read Than Write

Some poems
are so disappointing,
not worth the wait,
not worth the late-
night struggle to write.

A glass of whiskey
and a snuggle
with Rumi,
I’ve discovered,
never leave me discontent
like those
cantankerous words
holed up
inside the barrel
of my pen.
