I’ve started a post, one hundred times
I’ve written some words, I’ve written some rhymes
I’ve hated it all, I’ve stomped and I’ve cried
Well, not with real tears but you know that I tried
I’ve brewed up some coffee, and then brewed up some more
I finished it up and then went to the store
Got lost in the aisles, forgot why I came
Went back to the house, embroiled in shame
I needed to post, a post full of wit
But I only end up with a post full of…words that don’t make sense
I’ve tried to be jolly, I’ve tried to be cool
I’ve tried to find meaning amongst all the drool
GREAT…now I’m pretentious, using intellectual words
Where I don’t know the meaning and I just sound absurd
I was once sarcastic and often quite clever
But today I’m just sad and feeling under the weather
Well, that’s not true either, I’m just finding rhymes
Because I’m stuck in a block and it’s me against time
So I should have just said at the start of this poem
That I can’t find a muse to really get going
I’m out of ideas. There…I said it
It’s out in the universe, I can’t ever undo it
I can’t find my spark, my lightning, my zing
The pages are blank, I can’t write a thing
My life is in shambles, all hope has been lost
Oops, nope. I found it! It was still in the wash.
My ideas have returned! Creativity! Inspiration!
Now…what did I do with that darn Motivation?

Great poem … I enjoyed it immensely.
Thanks Gina!! Often when I feel a little “stuck” I return to grabbing a pen and scribbling on a page. It’s not a very sophisticated technique, but I’ve ended up with some fun stuff in the past.
After not having anything post worthy, I thought at least I could post about not having any thing post worthy…
Scribbling has to be the most fun way to get the muse “musing” again. I think I just made up a new word 🙂 Yikes!
Whatever works, even if that means making up new words…ha ha ha!!
Brought a smile to my face. Never fail to move or amuse me. Thanks, Greg!
Thanks Dava!! I wasn’t inspired, so I had to write about it…ha ha ha.
