Finding Thoughts

I cast about my
Mind, searching for words to string
Together making
Some semblance of real meaning,
But I am so uninspired.

Why have images
And phrases fled from my mind?
What fair sentences
Can I finally make to
Express worthwhile sentiments?

My ability
To spin delicate lines out
Has left me alone,
Deserted with no great hope,
But my creativity.

So I plot my way
From start to finish without
The grace of the muse,
Writing on my unwelcome
Lack of true inspiration.

I am grateful:

1.   My alarm woke me this morning.
2.   I remembered to take my BlackBerry with me when we went out.
3.   Mom’s test results were very good.
4.   The paper towels were discounted at Sam’s Club.
5.   We have flush toilets.

Mondays can be awful, but I hope yours was pleasant. Take some time to do something creative with your time. Using your imagination will improve your day.

For your prompt, write about a time you were lacking inspiration and how you overcame that situation. I just sit down and write until I make something up. I think all of us go through such times if we are devoted to creation. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

I am so glad you took time to visit my blog. If you have suggestions or thoughts, please share them with me via comment.

Jo Ann

    Oh dear, sounds like a trying Monday for you. I’m glad your mom’s test results were good this week; that must be a reflief for you. Hope Penny gets better. Sending you strength. 🙂

      Thank you Veronica. It was not so bad a day as it could have been. At least the test results were encouraging. Mom’s memory is better than the doctor expected. She is on meds for it.

      Penny is a bit difficult, but she is 14, and we cannot expect her to be as easy to deal with as when she was younger. She has been the best dog.

      Thank you for the positive energy. Some days I really need it.
