Writers Block.
A poem a day is what I'd say
And that is what I'd write
For a year or two, thats what I'd do
But then became my plight
It was lack of inspiration
Even though it's all around
What could it be, I couldn't see
For none of it I found
Was this poetic burn out?
What I think is writers block
A pebble found upon the ground
Now became a piece of rock
A blade of grass no longer swayed
It was green and that was that
No country towns on grassy mounds
Or tramps in weathered caps
But still I know I'll carry on
I have so much more to learn
I'll rant and curse for lack of verse
Until my muse returns.

Here's the deal.. :o)..Having writer's block would imply that there are nifty ideas  trying to burst to the surface and that some unknown force was preventing these swell ideas fro escaping their cranial prison..I suspect that in these fruitless situations there is the possibility that you simply have nothing to say...Willing your way to inspiration doesn't work. Sometimes you need to forget about writing and go take a nice walk, or strangle a cat...Anything to get you away from your computer or word processor. Charge up the old batteries by going out into the world and actually experiencing life....Then click your heels together three times and say, "Screw a bunch of writing. Sometime later, you may be cleaning out your oven and go, "Hmmmm...I think I have an idea!...len

OMG....yeah thats it! I got it too.....I wonder how the heck I ever wrote a verse to begin with...oh well....I know what a good dousing of inspiration can do for ya.

Great writing, have no fear you shall never lose it Graham.

Um....sounds to me like you have FOUND the answer to writer's block! If you're blocked and can turn out pieces like this...I can't WAIT to see what you turn out when you get passed the block!

Great work here, Graham!

This is the most creative tale of writer's block I've ever read...the poetic insights woven into the piece make me sigh with relief. The pebble, grass, and even the tramps...have given you away. You've still got it Graham, there is NO doubt. Such clever penning and I know there is much more where this came from. =))

Aw, Graham, listen sweetie, it won;t last for long. We have all been there a time or two, and feel that desperation, that almost panic, as if we have written all there is to be written, thought or said all we can. Try this..turn it into a silent mode. Listen to the world, every sound; see everything you can, and from different views as much as possible. Soak everyting in, and then sit for a bit and think on it. Sometimes I forget, that to have something to say, I need to remember how it is to be silent. ( I know this doesn;t make much sense, but it helps me! ..oh dear, does that say something?/ lol)
I think you did just fine expressing yourself here, now, do it again !
With Sincere Wishes that this passes,

Nice one Graham, I seem to be in that phase as well. Strange how one looks at things and they dont even stir the muse...Aah well... Yours seems to still be there. Joe

Sir Graham,

I agree with Joe...


Maybe you should look a little closer at that blade of grass.

I would say you have found it Graham. This is good stuff here, Joe
