A Writer's Haiku

Found myself trying to get some words on the page tonight and I'm failing dismally. So naturally what does a writer do when they can't write? They surf the web.

I went over to The Writer magazine website and on their front page I did spy a link to "12 new writing prompts to try". Hell, I needed a prompt so I took a look. One of the prompts was to write three Haiku poems in under ten minutes. Me I'm not a poetry guy but I thought I would give it a go anyway. The first two sucked pretty bad, but I like what I came up with for the third:

A Writer's Haiku
Writing is so hard
My brain does not want to work
When will the words come
