can't explain it

 

Looking at my desk, been two months
since paper touched pen.  Together
they lie, not speaking to one another.
Tried very hard to make them meld. 
How do I get them to talk to each other?

Entered some words on my trusty keyboard.
But the words just made an awful smell.
What’s wrong with my mind, or am I just bored?

Searching for something to say, a story to
write, perhaps a poem today.  But my mind has gone dry.
How sad for a once active muse to die.

A time to write
A time for quiet
Not of a quietus
Only of a hiatus

I stumbled across your poetry while looking for a secretary's day poem to share with the secretaries at work. Poetry is your gift, I believe one of many. I am a fan. I discovered you and Author's Den. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing, Mary. Hopefully, your muse has returned. Love and best wishes,

NOT 'DEAD', MARY, JUST TAKING A LITTLE 'SIESTA' BUT STILL GIVING YOU LITTLE SPURTS AS EVIDENCED IN THIS PIECE. FOR EVEN WHEN A POET THINKS THEY ARE SAYING NOTHING...IT IS SOMETHING. I CAN ASSURE YOU, IT WILL RETURN WHEN ITS READY, IN THE FASHION THAT YOU'VE BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO. MEANWHILE... I THINK ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO DO IS TO 'WAIT' BUT IT WILL BE MORE THAN WORTH IT. I ENJOYED THIS. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

muses don't die Mary, they just go on a brief hiatus... watch and see, as your muse returns to see those locked up words and phrases free!

Well written, Mary.

I'm sure inspiration will return.

R.I.P. Requiescant in Pace ...

Bemused by your Muse?
Of She, do you Accuse?
Is She in Seclusion?
Or is it just an Illusion?
Be Patient, then expect Fusion!

Merry Christmas - Tom...

I like your take on "writer's block" - very ingenious ..... guess you have to start sleeping with pen and paper at your side so you can write down your thoughts before they disappear "from mental view". I have thoughts that come into my head ... I figure I'll write them down later .... but later I can't seem to put those words together. Guess I should take my own advice. Susan
