Poetry, Not In Motion

Poetry, Not In Motion

I’ve lost my poem writing mojo
I don’t know how it occurred
Far too many months have flown by
And I’ve not penned one single word

My thought process has dried up
Can’t get my poetry brain into gear
Will I ever write another
It’s a possibility, I fear

There is no end of subject matter
That should encourage me to write
Some meaningful, some light-hearted
Much to wet my wordsmith appetite

I read the works of other poets
Hoping to make my juices flow
But once again there is nothing
Back to square one, status quo

I’m never usually lost for words
Perhaps I need a magic potion
A special prose elixir
To restore my poetry in motion

Writing poems is such a pleasure
A hobby I’ve enjoyed so very much
I can’t see a rhyme nor reason
For why I have lost my touch

Maybe I shouldn’t really worry
I should just relax, give it more time
And hope that one day very soon
I’ll get the urge to write again in rhyme

About the author

I love to write the odd poem when inspired by some event or happening in my own life or that of my family and friends. I usually just write poems for my own pleasure, but I have enjoyed sharing a few of my efforts on Silversurfers and have received some wonderful comments from the community. My pastimes include Rugby Union; I follow Leicester Tigers. I call myself a 'Hobby Colourist' and enjoy the work of the inky black and white artist Johanna Basford, and I also enjoy photography, in a very amature pastime kind of way.

I’ve no idea why I wrote a poem about not being able to write a poem. A daft kind of therapy to regain my mojo. It might just work. Thank you for reading it and loving it Yodama.

Thank you very much Carole. A moment of daftness. Let’s see what it brings forth.
