Sitting in the interior light,

Wondering what is right,

Trying for something good to write,

Boredom is certainly the bane of night…


Mind filled with a fire unknown,

Taken from a time when hardly grown,

Into the collar of a coat boredom is sewn,

To always be present but never shown…


If this you do understand,

Then explain it to me,

Nothing have I written here planned,

No thought in my head is ever grand…

A busy pen is a happy pen. But I do understand boredom. It's not necessarily the enemy though. Patrick

"Into the collar of a coat boredom is sewn, / To always be present but never shown…"

Of course I understand this, and I imagine that you do also. Great two lines above, man.

"Nothing have I written here planned, No thought in my head is ever grand…" I think that's the way it is for most of us, Ed. Well done.
