Sometimes a writer’s well of words runs dry
Just as a wildcat oil well yields none this try
A writer’s words can be challenging to find
Why won’t more words be a friend of mine?
Life brings distractions that take away
Gone for a while is the freedom to say
Perhaps memories of the past come to bear
Ambushing a desire to write without a care
Searching for inspiration to write
A morning walk clears one’s sight
Reading others’ blogs charges the mind up
Their words arrive to fill an exhausted cup
Viewing a distinctive, older film brings bliss
The storyline relaxes a mind, to foster a list
A list of impressive ideas begins to churn
Now feeling more confident at every turn
Thankfully, this sorry condition won’t last
Soon words will be flowing, what a blast!
