A Poem by Kathy Mc Cathy

I’m completely out of ideas
My paint palette with colors disappeared
Not a splash on the canvas
The paintbrush shivering with fear


There’s no mountain , no climb
Nothing at the moment excites me
Maybe I’ll see another bug and try to think of something
Out the balcony is where i’ll be


Has my imagination reached its limits
A new found fence to bind this spirit in place
Or it’s just another phase of writer's block
And with that i’ll see you again

I suffer with writer's block for months at a time so I totally understand this feeling. This is written very well and really conveys how it feels to have such a blockage.

This is a brilliant title for this message! I hope this isn't autobiographical . . . or if it is, I hope it's not a lengthy blank-out (((HUGS)))

I use song and reading. I have a book of the great poets and writers. Last week I found Anne Finch, she gave me reasons to write. Sometimes we must rest our minds too. Need a adventure dear Kathy. Hello from Michigan and thank you for sharing your words and your thoughts.

I can totally relate to that feeling. After my father passed away I didn't write for over ten years. I felt totally empty inside devoid of any creativity or inspiration. I just had so much difficulty putting anything into words. I didn't even want to try. The road back is different for writer I feel. Sometimes a little break is needed. But in the end it will work itself out I believe because writing really has its Peaks and plateaus at times. Stay strong and positive and in no time you will be finding your groove once again.

Oh my dear, the dreaded block. It happens to us all. But you have been clever enough to extract a poem out of it and I say well done for that. Have a great Wednesday.
