Word Blind

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Not a haiku.. not nothing really.. just the way it is

Word Blind

 

I am all dried up

Lost for words and so tongue tied

Not good for an old poet

Hi Neville,
Your author’s note convinced me this is a low point. I think we never run out of words, we just run out of faith in them. The poet is stifled bit by bit...by life and it’s myriad of players.

You said more by not saying much here.

Play some old song, find the sea or read some worthwhile words. My muse is reading and the song. Some Johnnie Cash, some Tom Jones and Nick Caves. Make me want to write. Hello my friend and I hope you are doing well and having some fun.

.......... okay :)
sometimes it's hard to get the words out and other times we just feel uninspired.
the latter generally fixes the former, and I do understand the feeling

Writer's block is like the constipation of the literary kind. Soon, everything will flow once again with the fiber of our being. Hang in there, Nev!
