Gone Fishing

wood in water

It’s not where I left it
I swear it’s around
One moment the spark’s lit
Then ashes abound
The juices were gushing
Overflowing my mind
Then sit at this keyboard
And echoes I find

My muse has gone AWOL
Won’t fascinate, enthrall
The colours are muted
The trumpet won’t call
No toes are a’tappin’
No laughter’s head-turning
With no bubble of fancy
No way of discerning

What has happened to all those creative ideas?!?

All well, no poems today…
…have gone fishing…

  1. It frustrates me too when an idea slips away
    I usually end up going for a walk with Maggie to search for the idea
    Sometimes it returns but more often than not
    The idea remains lost in the noise of life
    Usually on the walk, a flower or two will bloom a new thought
    The key is to not forget before it becomes a post
