For everything there is a season...a season to be silent and reflect and wait...be patient my friend, poetry is in the soul, you will never "lose" it!

Hope your inspiration returns.I've been there, still am somehow...Though at times a star falls from heaven and I scribble something... Reading lots of poems helped somehow.

I'm going through the same thing right now, but even with no inspiration we can still write about that... Great work, Skat. Keep writing always :)

Love how ironic that you wrote about what you cannot do! I think writer's block is like an Upper Respitory infection. We cannot breath without the words and they make no inhaler for this!

Is this called passive inspiration? It does inspire me now. I will write and some ink will flow out of that pen, once I overcome...

I know i have been here, as writers we can all relate. Sometimes it happens all of a sudden, like one minute I'll these wonderful poetic thoughts and the next, they're gone. But they do return :) Point blank can be inspirational...

Your words convey emotions that are easily understandable, totally relatable and poetically expressed. When there is noting more to say why cloud it with fluff, as per the old adage “less is more.” Emile.

Your inspiration must come from the Muse of poetry, and lead you with pen in hand, to capture whatever comes to mind.
