WASTED EFFORT

I thought I would write a poem today
but could not think of a thing to say.
I'd write a poem as sure as fate
if I could just concentrate.
So varied the topics that fill my mind
but nothing tangible I find.
Just take the weather for example
what's written about it seems quite ample.
The subject of love clutters so much stuff
In my opinion, there's more than enough.
The changes in seasons are always here
but they're always the same, year after year.
Or, one could write about sunshine or shore
but that's been done so much before.
OH! Well, I may as well go to bed
as try to bother my befuddled head.
For there's one thing I now plainly see
It's just not my day to write poetry!

  4. Your poetry comes from the very core of your heart....and this post speaks about how good a person you are....coz you've not written anything as your heart was not feeling to write...
    Every one must do the same.:)

  5. Of course as one might say
    There's only so much to write
    With words so mighty
    That swords do shudder
    And light cascades on the bay


    Goodlife Margie and thank you for your light

  11. Even if a subject has been spoken about before -- it's the way you express it that makes the difference.

  15. So today is blank no worries even in this day you are flowing with poetry...Here I am after reading yours thought will write one poem about you LOL

    ~ Fountain Pen ~

    Luxuries pen
    In slickness designed
    Luminous colors
    Ink fountain
    Will flow with words
    Under the touch of your hands
    But the page remain
    Unwritten
    Blank without your words
    As today was fated
    Going by without poetry
    Inspiration did not find its way
    Embossing words with fountain pen
    That ultimately fills blankness
    In the heart of your page

  22. No wonder Wordsworth defined poetry as the "spontaneous overflow of powerful emotion".
    Not everyday that one gets inspired to create a poem; somedays it just 'wasted effort'.

  23. don't feel silly margie, it is a hawk!!
    We think it is a red tailed hawk.
    When his wingspan is open it is huge plus I have seen it swoop down for prey.:)
