So true Davy, reading this I’m struck with the thought that in this laptop land even a humble Bic has garnered an air of romance.

Nice one, Davy. Is it that sometimes the words just don’t come? I felt like that when I was writing songs. Maybe I should put my words to music instead of my music to words– if that makes sense.

    You should post them on your blog Laura. I think songs are poetry set to music anyway. I have been listening to Bob Dylan’s back catalog of songs and there is some wonderful poetry in there.

      I have dreams of tormenting my followers with a sound channel of sorts–youtube? But I haven’t been playing the guitar because I have more pressing matters to attend to. I feel it will happen all in good time, though. First, I need to get a family member to bring me my guitar from the other house 🙂 I’ve been thinking how it would be a nice way to create and unwind after reading and writing about climate change. It’s important to continue creating beauty. Hope you have a nice weekend at the beach, Davy–Speedos and all!

      Thank you Laura. You may see some headlines in the UK newspapers. Go for the youtube channel. I am in the process of doing one for the poetry.

    Words and Music = Soulmates in a song! Haven’t gotten to counting syllables but have found that if you find a rhythm, your own or borrowed the words seem to come easier.

This is so relatable! Just last night actually.
I normally do write straight onto my computer but have found my thoughts tend to go bigger when I hand write on paper…hmmm time for more caffeine 🙂

My pen doesn’t weary, but my mind and inspiration do – all too often. So those ‘spaces on paper’ we lament Davy, do continue to grow.

Very effective alliteration, Davy…words waiting to be written. Lovely and provocative. Thank you!

Words left unwritten, words left unsaid…The torn, aged sheet of paper evokes a feeling of fearing old age & death. Powerful words & image!

The pen and paper hold no distractions for my undisciplined mind to follow or tweet. Just me, paper and ink.

So true, Davy. I store my ideas in a Word document, which when I get ready to write I select what will spark my imagination. I use my computer, tablet, and phone for everything, except my grocery lists.

We all have days like that don’t we? Times when minutes turn into hours and distractions take precedence over our words. Suddenly, our engine comes to a complete STOP!!! And then we have other moments when our mind explodes with ideas so quickly and forcefully we can barely get all our thoughts down before they fade away. Nope, you cannot force creativity. Well, actually, as a teacher I know it can be done for an assignment when necessary. But, what can NOT be forced is genius. The perfect words that simply roll off the tongue and onto the paper with ease. THAT is when the magic happens. Isn’t it fascinating how creativity can remain dormant, sometimes for long periods of time, and then suddenly burst into our lives when we least expect it? A writer who is good at his/her craft can write whenever asked to perform, (Rather like an actor reciting a line in a play she has performed a hundred times. But mediocrity is not the same as brilliance.) However, for the irresistible enchantment to happen, something defying logic must take place. And the beauty for me, is that I NEVER know when that will occur.

I really liked this poem. It inspired me. I have a novel, a pretty darn good one I think, gathering dust under my bed, that I stopped working on well over a year ago. I just suddenly stopped on chapter 10 or 11. I think your poem has sparked a little light inside of me to find it, pick it up, and continue to search for the magic that first drove me to write it. Hmmm….Just three lines and you have my mind soaring. Thank you Davy. You made me remember the last time my pen grew weary. And I’m not a quitter so I better find my muse again…. Gracias.

Love this, Davy!
Yes, pens and pads of paper are waiting for us to create poems, stories, and to write down our memories! The words are there waiting, too. Weirdly, I assign human feelings to objects like pens and paper. And I think they are lonely when we are not using them to create. 🙂
I still write ideas or a few words or a line down on paper, but I do most of my writing on the computer these days.
I still love the feel of my favorite pen and a notebook! 🙂
HUGS!!! 🙂

Loved this poem!! Three powerful lines!!! I’m just not sure if it is the ink dried up waiting for me, the pen got weary or the words are there but still hiding in the shadows? Thank you so much for this wonderful motivation and “seed” for me. I will have a “Blossom” to show you when you return as a result of this post and an awesome comment by Lesley!! Shall we nickname you “The Pied Piper of Poetry”? The coaxer of poems out of others?
Thank you for the gift!
