Absent Afflatus

I   nvisible                                                                               
N ot presently present
S ilently sulking
P atiently waiting for it
I  ncredibly frustrating
R eminding myself that this is hard
A bject failure today
T otally devoid of ideas or desire
I   magination crumbles
O pen to the merest inkling of illumination
N one to be found…


Quote of the day:  If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple.  But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.                        ~George Bernard Shaw


  1. I love the poem and the quote. This whole month has been about exchanging those ideas and learning from each other.

  2. Inspiration comes from trying...and you did, and it inspired me. So, bravo!

  3. By the end of the month we will have a deep pool of ideas. nevertheless, I can guarantee, that there will be days when the mind goes blank. It is especially admirable when you write on those days. Feel good.
