The Brain is Unplugged

Where have all the little words gone?
For that matter, the big ones went along,
here, at a time, when the poetry was smug,
and now, at a loss, my brain is unplugged.

Once, when the words loosed themselves freely
poems ranged from anger to good touchy-feely,
and then when I thought there was more to tell
the words done dried up like a forgotten old well.

Now Iím searching, doing anything for inspiration
looking for that elusive, wide range sensation
wanting nothing more but to spark some creation
anything simple ~ not looking to rock the nation.

Where have all the little rhyming words gone?
Probably sleeping in a babyís lullaby song,
somewhere out riding on the Kansas wind high,
mayhap the words are biding in my loverís sigh.

The words are floating everywhere
They gently sail through the air.
Open your ears and, of course, your mind
And harvest what there is to find.

My dear - I know that feeling all too well! Hey - if you can write a poem about NOT being able to write I don't think you need to worry! - and a great poem it is too.
