Black Birds in a Black Night

Updated on July 29, 2015

I want to...

The Writing Process

I want to

I can’t

I try to

I don’t

Blackbirds in a black night

I wonder, roam and conjure

I want to

Lightening bugs

Mason jars

Underneath the hood of a car

Tadpoles and river sides

Driving down back roads on a starry night

Washing dishes

Folding clothes

Praying all alone

WHY? WHY? WHY?

Sometimes,

I want to

Sometimes,

I can’t

WRITE


one wonderful word

one short line

one salvageable sentence

One magnificent rhyme

      Most who have had writer's block at one time or the other seem to relate to this one. Thanks for your support.
