I have no words this sleepy night
that fill my tongue with flair 
my soggy brain's not sharp or bright
more just supports my hair.

The burning flame that fuels the pen
to scribe the shooting stars
has dwindled down to ash again
to leave block's ugly scar.

A good night's rest, my fondest wish
and what will fill the well
with swirling, eager, wordy fish
(the clever ones- no smell).

    This is pretty unique, Kris..Writers' block is a tough place to be in...I get upset and luckily there's always some distraction around the bend. Have a great weekend! Always, Annalise

    A nice poetic way to describe writer's block-a common 'ailment' among fine writers. You've got good words and rhyming in this presentation.

    Kris, when I have writers' block, I usually go fishing (for thoughts as well as real fish). Sometimes being at one with nature can provide inspiration. This is clever and funny! Love, Carolyn
