No Rest But For The Soul

I sow my thoughts
Upon this barren soil
Where unrest kicks its dust
Writhing inside
Waiting for solitude
A harness that tames the wild
Ease is not found in ceaseless toil
Let go the burdens
That spoil
Inward cries of the restless
No ears may hear
No respite can quiet
A soul that knows
No repose day 15 prompt,

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own dramatic monologue. It doesn’t have to be quite as serious as Browning or Shakespeare, of course, but try to create a sort of specific voice or character that can act as the “speaker” of your poem, and that could be acted by someone reciting the poem.

I wrote on rest as this is the prompt for pubchat  at dVerse. What are your thoughts about rest and how do you find it.
