Looking For Inspiration

 

I’m looking for inspiration, my ideas are running dry;

there’s not even one small flicker, I realise and sigh.

 

I’ll go and watch the T.V., especially the News

but far from inspirational are their jaundiced views.

 

Maybe from a newspaper but that’s something I don’t buy,

when looking at those headlines I understand just why.

 

The book I’m reading isn’t one for giving me ideas --

a desert of ‘inspire me not’ is one of my great fears.

 

I’ll go out walking on the streets or sit inside the car;

I’ll watch the people as they pass both near and from afar.

 

But it’s really just not happening, no story-lines are there,

I sit and fret and worry, tear my hair out in despair.

 

For seven months these ideas flowed, they never did abate,

but now they have abandoned me and it’s a feeling that I hate.

 

Hey, here it comes, that little spark of momentary inspiration;

I’ll write about these problems and the very real frustration.

 

Once I make that decision and I pick back up my pen

the ideas they begin to flow, back on course again!
