An ode to writers block!
The mind empty lacks all sensation
Seeking now poetic inspiration
John Drury sits unopened here
Writers block, my biggest fear
Teachers say - write that you know of
Sadness, joy, hate or even love
But if there is a void of those
How can I write my poetry or prose?
I seek music to soothe this burning desire
“come on” Jose, ‘Light My Fire’!
Nothing then but keyboard and screen
Venting now, my poetic spleen.
**Note: John Drury is the author of my favorite 'kick me in the butt for inspiration' book titled Creating Poetry.
