Writer’s Block

Poem Writer’s Block

 

I have a thought…

But I’m unable to write it out

Expressing it’s so difficult…

And words are so scarce right now

 

I’m thinking about something…

I know that it’s worth sharing

Writer’s block must be my condition…

 

I feel so helpless… and lost

I’m surrounded by motivation…

I feel the energy of excitement

But the words I seek are holding me hostage

 

I’m restless…

I should forget my agony for now

And focus on a meaningful task in the interim

 

Take a walk perhaps…

Or simply a short drive

Disregard the ink and paper for a while…

And remember life as it’s before me

 

Temporary conditions are facts of existence…

A dead-end in writing’s no exception

Be prepared for when the fountain flows again…

And record those thoughts in words preponderant

The Winds of Change

Poem: The Winds of Change

 

 

The winds of change are eternal
Sustaining life internal
As the sun burns brisk in the sky
The winds of eternity comes alive
With the fresh wind comes new life
And the old and faded, are relieved accordingly

Whispers transformed

Poem: Whispers transformed

 

 

Whispers resonate in the night...
Homage paid to the old trite
Giggles occasionally, and stamping feet
Exaggeration in full competition...

Acting out the notorious repetition

Chatter and gossip- the night stood still...
Not even a break for a unified thrill
Blab, whine and scandal...

No end in sight, except daybreak perhaps...
Yeah, oh yes...
Wow, someone said- 'goodnight'!

An engine started, and suddenly there was one less

Then, the goodbyes became contagious
A deafening silence followed
The night was free!

 

The sounds and songs became alive...
The natural creatures subscribed
Whispers transformed...
The night's welcomely reformed

I Feel Like Writing a Poem

Poem: I feel like writing a poem

 

 

 

I feel like writing a poem...

Something about the way I feel

Something about the things I see...

Something about the thankfulness for good health...

And good feelings

 

I feel like writing a poem...

Because I am alive

A thought about love...

Happiness and more

 

I feel like writing a poem...

Everyone’s around enjoying the moments

Wonders of life...

Experiences to treasure

 

I feel like writing a poem...

Zephyr is so comforting

The breeze of heaven and the faithful sun...

The ocean's so enticing

 

Time's being transformed...

Into words of appreciation

The future... only a heart beat away

Every moment in time...

Is poetic and real

 

I feel like writing a poem...

About something to treasure...

The joy that brings humbleness and prayer

To a soul in need of sustenance

Why?

Poem Why?

 

 

The word of curiosity…

The symbol of insights

We want to know…

That’s why we ask

 

Full of knowledge…

The answers wait

Not always welcoming…

It’s the response still

 

Seeking the truth…

Being nosey

Inquisitive to a specific end…

In search to ease a vexing dilemma

 

Why?

The heart of the spirit

The soul’s working…

And compiling comprehension

 

The more we identify…

The further we don’t

 We’re consumed…

 By issues infinite

The Web

Poem: The Web

 

The web is where I am
doing all things that I can

The web is where I shall be
growing like a big strong tree

 

The web is relatively new
and where opportunities spew

The web is for me
and for you!

 

Who invented this web for sure
was it really Al Gore?

It really doesn't matter…

As it's everyone's platter

 

The web was handed to all
both big and small

The future is bright hence
so, don't just sit on a fence

 

Take advantage of the web
while the sun is just over head!

Waves on a Roll

Poem: Waves on a roll…

 

 

 

Frosty gush briskly curls athwart the reef…

Romantically hushed theater with breathtaking vigor

Keen to the superb moment…

Rolling waves with splendid fondness

… A revered domain with thoughts complete

 

Energy flow mightily in adulation…

Revealing the power of serene mystery

Quietly impressive with dazzling skies…

A depiction of priceless attraction

 

Power and grandeur colorfully naked…

Gifted ocean acclaimed and trusted

Rich in inspired presence, and comforting surprise…

Flowing in authentic fortunes valued and dear

 

Ocean dynamic and enthusiastic…

Ingenious splash the end awe touch

Sight remarkable wet and wild…

Cozy wind flows like love in action

 

I witnessed the amazement with full approval…

…and I pray for more waves of devout marvel

The ones that speak liberty and harmony

…and emphasize the superb day with insightful gusto
