School Run Colours 04/02/15 - Writer's Block

School Run Colours

I sit blank, poised over sheets
Waiting for ideas to splash 
Out in a stream unending
Painting a picture of dreams
Pondering over the next letter
Choking on the stuck syllable
Wondering what mark to make
What is it I wish to create
Seeking the spark to guide 
My hand over paper to write
The story waiting to unfurl 
Listless clouds in blue skies 
Framing the last remnants 
Bleeding red on thorny spikes 
The words ring hollow 
Yet sound so true
Coming from a place 
Further away than I care to
Remember the reality of
The waiting
For the words to flow
In an endless stream.


These are my School Run Colours for this week. If you are new to the School Run Colours linky, you can read all about it here, including how to link up.

    1. Thanks Gauri. I am glad you enjoy my writing. Helps soldier through the writer's block when you know people actually want to read what you write.

  2. We are getting crocuses on our school run now. Their colours are yellow, white and purple - it's nice to see.

  3. I think we have all been struck by writer's block at some stage. Thank goodness for the inspiration that is nature!

    1. I suppose that is one reason for this linky. If nothing else, I have set myself the challenge to come up with at least one creative piece every week.

  4. I have so many times like this. I am striving to blog regularly but lots of days esp lately I have nothing. Thankful for photos as they are a great substitute to a rather empty mind.

    1. Photos are a nice option, but I am not that great a photographer. (Not saying I am any better as a writer, but I will allow myself to be deluded.) But glad that the photos work for you, Merlinda.

  8. Lovely photo! I find that I always completely go blank at the moment as soon as I sit in front of the computer, so frustrating.

  14. I like the way this flows with sentences over two lines, bringing with it that feeling of disconnection and broken thoughts that come with writers block. Really like this, one of my favourites of yours x Thanks so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x
