That Silent Enemy From Within !!!

Updated on November 13, 2012
Source

My day begins at 6.00am ;I get up and put the kettle on then I begin my writing day.I scribble a poem/or poems into my A4 writing pad as I am enjoying my very first cup of tea ........

However this morning I could not get into my composing mode;I scribbled a little and scrapped it out etc. I searched deeply for inspiration but to no avail;then it came to me!!!

Then it came to me : Of course I would compose some poems on not being able to write; then adding beautiful flowing pics to accompany.These soft flowing images are what I felt as the words once again flowed smoothly.

I hope you all enjoy!!!

Acrostic: Writer's block.

When a mind is blank

Rudely blocking the way

I try to think

Tears almost threatening

Every words unfit

Relaxation blocked

Surely there must be a way.

x

Breathe deeply,close your eyes and drift

Let your thoughts flow freely

Over each mountain and down to each dale

Caressing each dew drop

Kissing each poem now so freely flowing.

Source

Free that tangled mind

Allow your thoughts to fly high

Caress each sweet flow.

Rictameter:Today.

Today

That writers block

A visit not welcome

I try to beat oh so keenly

That sly silent enemy from within

And then my fingers start strumming

Carried on wings of love

Words freely flow

Today.


I hope you enjoyed to day's hub and have a great day.

Eddy.

      Hi, your poem is lovely and so are our pictures, they are all beautiful to see. I love the song by Cat Stevens, too. He's a wonderful and very talented singer. Best wishes from America!

      Oh thank you stars your comments are always filled with such kindness and care and i can assure you so greatly appreciated. Isn't it so nice that we can share our thoughts on here;that in turn brings us solace as well as helping others.For years I kept everything hidden away not even my best friend knew what went round in my head .It is only in this last decade that I have slowly but surely learnt to open up and what a wonderful gift to have.Also on here we care and empathise and I Know your health hasn't been at its best lately but here's love and hugs to you and your beautiful family all the way from Wales.

      I wish you a great weekend.

      Eddy.

      This was eloquent. No other word can describe it as well. And the images you included along with the video carry your thoughts to our minds and our hearts. Morning has broken is one of my favorites of all time. "Caressing each dew drop...' loved that...Voted up +++

      So, when this writer's block comes to visit, give it a break and sip a cup of coffee....

      I enjoyed this one my lovely! Thanks for picking up my mood up today!

      Cheers!

      If that is what you come up with when your mind is BLANK...OH MY!

      Very beautiful - and besides that, it addresses what can be done towards getting the thoughts moving.

      As for myself....I find a brisk ride on the bicycle to fire me into gear.

      Cheers!
