What to write about when you've got nothing to write about.

A Verse About nothing in Particular

I wandered today deep in thought,
But all my thinking came to nought,
What to write about what tale to tell,
On just one subject my mind , it would not dwell,

What to jot on that cold white page,
Should it be peaceful or should it rage,
The words I write could they be honey sweet?
Or should they be be tinged with self defeat,

So many poets with sombre thoughts,
Appear to be what my eye has caught,
But doom and glooom is not my style,
I much prefer my readers smile,

So until my mind has inspiration grand,
I feel constrained to hold my hand,
And later in tones of metered measure,
,Endevour to bring my readers pleasure

Hi John I know the feeling. On one of my 'writer's block' days I wrote a poem a bit similar to yours entitled 'Poets Day Off' Yours is better though!

I like this one - the first line reminds me of 'I wandered lonely as a cloud' - the poem is simple, precise, rhythmic

This is a very good poem- straight from the heart. It touches a chord in anyone who is a natural writer.
More power to your pen, John.
