    So clever, it made me smile. Somehow, I am never without Inspiration which comes from the Divine. For me, I only need to be still and open to receive and it come regardless of the media, ie, words, music, art, or whatever I choose to use. Hugs, pat

    • Thanks so much for your reading and comments. I think your right. Inspiration comes from somewhere beyond and higher than us. I do think there is something to relaxing and creating. I like how you said this, and it makes sense:” I only need to be still and open to receive”. Have a great day!

  2. I am in awe of your ingenious and clever style of writing. The last sentence was simply brilliant Ben πŸ‘

    Brilliant formatting. The plight of writer’s block is all too relatable. I’m loving the phrase “scattered staccatos.” Hope this helped find some of your inspiration back!

  4. Kally says:

    Beautifully worded. Thoroughly enjoyed this piece!

    If this is how you write without inspiration – you have no need to worry! πŸ˜€
    Great poem. πŸ™‚

    You clever writer!!!

  10. Secrets says:

    Ben, what can I say that hasn’t already been said. This poem is both relatable, but so very creative. Your ability to think outside the box while exploring something most writers experience makes this piece so delightful and enjoyable. I’m jealous Ben, I wish I had written it!

    Oh I love this. I had this exact feeling yesterday… then it went away :)) As it obviously did for you too, or you worked it through :))

    • Thanks. I worked it through for today. Tomorrow we’ll see, though. Every day is new day.

      • Lia says:

        For me it works to read offline for a while when I have time, that’s what got me going again yesterday. Either that or just doing the tasks of “real life”

      • Yes! That’s exactly probably the best way. Reading, exercise, “real life”. But these days I feel online is just as much “real life” as offline. The boundaries will only blur even more in the future. Just here we have a community/society basically. We’re just sustained off different nourishment, if that makes sense, the sustenance of creativity instead of foodstuff.

      • Lia says:

        I hear you for sure… and it’s what we take in that partly determines our output… so we have to choose our foods wisely I guess, though just like IRL, easier said than done. :)) I agree that more offline time is better… also easier said than done!! For me anyway… :)) and I think for many. Thanks for the chat and hope you have a lovely day πŸ’›

    The formation of the last lines is creative. Awesome write.

  17. Sang says:

    Beautifully expressed.

    But did you note that whereas you have expressed an inability even to write a proper sentence

    You have written it perfectly in the reverse order..

    Loved it all..

    Extremely clever, Benjamin!

  19. hahaha I strived to be witty as this. superb

  20. The feeling is all too familiar I guess to everyone who writes regularly. The pond dries up every once in a while. But miraculously well up again. Lovely words pulled out of even a situation this low. :))

  21. Oh have been there and felt that..believe me! Great description and lay-out too. Even in your lamenting, I sense a strong sense of humor in you..As I am sure you will see, or have seen, the bounce back always comes:)

    No new posts???

    Benjamin, I think you have scaled the pick of the imagination mountain, even a dog loves your poem and made a comment on, how wonderful is that?

    Happy New Year!

    You have put words to an experience I’ve had many times this past year.

  25. Inshoimran says:

    You are a witty writer..God bless youπŸ™‚

  26. Aarushi says:

    I love the phrasing of the ending, it’s so clever! and sometimes all I can write when it comes to love haha

  27. Thanks again! Very cool to read your thoughts!
