A Poem by Wild Rose

 Blank Page

11 March 2019

10:44

I am sitting ccccccccwith a blank sheet of paper

It says that it wants me to write on it

 

What can I write

I have no inspiration

 

I dont have any ideas

Not even a picture to draw

 

The page just lays there

Staring back at me

 

I attempted to read your writing

The words were too close together

 

All jumbled

They made no sense

 

I wonder

Am I alone

 

Did the poets and writers of old

Have times like this

 

Did Wordsworth

Burns

 

Or Coleridge

I know he was often dancing with opium the fairys

 

Did they have days

Of blankness

 

I wonder

All writers had days where they couldn't write. Hemingway struggled. Hard to write when the mind is tire. I read other folks poetry when my mind is working. I listen to song and read. Usually awake my pen. Thank you dear friend for sharing your amazing words and your thoughts.

The mind is like hardened sludge sometimes and there’s no breaking in at all. I’m just a scribbler. I don’t know about the greats. Perhaps, they had more synapses and neurons firing away. It’s a mystery what they felt. My own experiences with the Block are always appalling.

Perhaps it’s just those times of inspiration that keep us going through the dull patches...
Haha, I totally enjoyed and relate, the blank page problems the blank page rage, you express nothing much to say very well, I once wrote a 4 page piece on having writer's block not understanding the irony that was, lol

Yes, Wild Rose, they and we suffered from writers block if you will. Sometimes a single word will trigger a thought and that thought will gather another and become a group. I find that emptying the mind works most times, to see what turns up.
And besides, for not being able to formulate an idea, you wrote a pretty good poem.
Keep at it.

I'm pretty sure they must have. Perhaps we ask too much of our imaginations? It's so frustrating when you want to write but can't, rather like the car that was running just fine and then won't start.

A clever write Wild Rose. I feel sure they probably had their fair share of days where they lacked inspiration. It happens to most of us. Hope all is good with you.
