    lately the rain
    has gotten heavier,
    pours more rapidly.
    the wind has enlist
    and deviates it's course
    h o r i z o n t a l l y
    to beat against me.
    my mental's umbrella
    grows fragile,
    drenched in
    the elements
    of daily living.
    my mind seems
    to sop up
    EVERYTHING,
    yet
    NOTHING
    seeps out.
    clogged arteries
    trap my thoughts.
    d
    r
    o
    p
    lets puddle
    straining my
    frame of mind.
    numb fingers
    grip a paralyzed pen.
    I ask,

    "when will this bout of
    writer's block end?"

    Looks like it just did!

    Often we are stifled in our creativity by the demands of daily living, but more than likely it is simply that the words are there
    just as you say"Blocked" temporarily. That you got these words on paper denotes the block "be ova". It is not the quantity
    but the quality that counts. And like love creativity cannot be forced it must come naturally. No worries sweetchild!
    It comes naturally to you and will soon be flooding ova!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE AND YA PEN!

    "when will this bout of
    writer's block end?"

    when you stop getting caught up in all dat rain...looking out on the river, thinking 'bout what could be instead of what you could be writing.:)

    there is an old saying; just write...and continue to write. your writing mood will return before you know it.

    now, do what you do so well.

    Today was a good day. sometimes we have to write about the block itself to overcome it
