Poetry Corner: Writer’s Block

Writer’s Block

Right now
I’m totally frustrated
at the fact,
that I sat
down to write about
something truly wonderful,
and all I could think of was life.
I wanted to say
how beautiful love is,
but all I could think of
was someone special,
smooth jazz, good wine
and sharp cheese.
I wanted to write
something absolutely
hilarious, and all I could
think of was tube socks
and flip-flops.
I wanted to write something
serious and thought-provoking,
and all I could think of was
the state of our economy,
the condition of our environment
and why Dr. Seuss is not
required reading.
I really wanted to break this
Writer’s Block – but by the clock
(with much sorrow)
I’ll have to try again tomorrow.
