Is writing block a mental constipation
giving gaseous grumbling alliteration
No grunting, no groaning will prevail
so I sit here and endure my travail.

Would fibrous words of wooded glen
cause these words to flow again
Chemicals never were my forte
so I sit here, without words to say.

Twiddle my thumbs, rearrange my file
(thank God I am a bibliophile!)
Waiting to feel the signs of release
give me words and give me peace!

I spy on my shelf a dictionary of rhyme
and suddenly, all is fine!
Such a relief! Now I can relax,
I just got a dose of mental ex-lax!

Well, Poet deVine, I must say you've come up with a unique metaphor for what we call "writer's block". That one I've never heard before.

I never take offense at anything said about my poetry...being a poet of common sense, I know some of what I write is good, some is bad...some is downright awful..some..some rare pieces actually are poetry.

Thank you all...my aim in life is to bring a smile to your face, a tear to you eye, poetry to your soul....

hee hee....
I know the feelings you describe!! Though, I never put them into such wonderful words. I don't know how I missed this one...it's great! (Dunno, perhaps I was trapped in a dungeon 'bout that time.) :O

WOW! I have felt that so often that as I read and read, it struck a tone recalling all the time I struggled to write a simple phrase. Wonderful job, I love your poems!

Still giggling Poet deVine...Can we get that mental ex-lax in chocolate flavored...I'm due for a fix! (My list of favorites from you grows again!)
