Poetry Month: Poems Do Not Come Easily 22 of 30

It's here!  It's National Poetry Month!  I'll hoping to write a poem every day this month.  I've decided to keep it simple this year.  I'm going to write about whatever strikes me each day.  I suppose it will be like a rollercoaster ride of poetry.  You'll never be quite sure what you're in for from day to day.

Today's inspiration:  writer's block

Poems do not come as easily,
when your pencil
has been resting in a drawer,
your notebook slumbering
on a nearby shelf.

Poems do not come easily,
when your eyes have been closed,
ignoring the beauty
that encircles you:
the budding trees,
the blossoms dancing,
the robins nesting.

Poems do not come easily,
when you no longer pause
to listen to the sounds
that surround you:
the spring peeper's song,
the cheery chirp of morning,
the babble of the creek.

Poems do not come easily,
when you no longer notice
the stories that await words
to awaken them:
the subtle metaphor missing,
connections unnoticed,
moments passing without regard.

Poems do not come easily,
when your pencil
has been resting in a drawer,
the blank pages of your notebook
wondering where you've been.

  5. I have long felt a special connection with Herbal Medicine. For one thing is natural, Charlie we went to the same small college in Southern California — Claremont Men’s College — though he dropped out and ultimately enrolled at the Julliard School of the Performing Arts in New York. Had he stayed at Claremont, he would have been a senior the year I started there; I have often kidded that I was the reason he left when he finds out I had herpes. So my life have been lonely like hell all day I couldn't bear the outbreak pain, Tasha then introduce me to Dr Itua who use his herbal medicine to cure her two weeks of drinking it. I place an order form him and he delivers to my post office then I picked it up and used for two weeks all my sore was healed completely no more outbreak I'm honestly telling you this man is a great man, I trust him and his herbal medicine so much I'm sharing this to show my appreciation also to let sick people know there is hope with Dr Itua Herbal Made Medicine.Dr Itua Contact Email.drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com,Whatsapp.+2348149277967
