All things can tempt me

All things can tempt me from the verse I need to write: Even the dishes can sway me from my plight. The rain, it’s lashing hard upon the window pane. It’s stopped - I’ll write. No! There it goes again. Could it be I’m too tired? Could it be I’m bored? Once again, I discover, I’m worryingly flawed! The suns too hot. Far too hot I do declare, It’s doing absolutely nothing for my creative flair. The paper is still blank, the nothingness a clue, Too many things tempt, just between me and you!! All things can tempt me- Poetry Contest 20th February 2020 Sponsor- Beth Evans
