When a post is not a post

Several times today I sat in front of the computer to write a blog. There is usually something on my mind that I want to discuss. Nothing came to mind. I walked away and then came back later to try again with the same result.

OK, I thought, I need some inspiration from some poetry! Three poetry books later I couldn’t find one that resonated with me at all. Have you ever noticed how much poetry is about death and grief etc.? I don’t mind touching on those topics but I may not get many people reading my blog.

It has been a good day – and reading the poetry was a good thing to do – I lost myself in it for while. It was a good day overall. What more can I ask for? Maybe I will be inspired next time.

Cheers for now



  1. I have tried to stay away from the subject of death and grief myself so I took upon a new journey. My poems will be filled with more light and happiness. I hope you enjoy:)

  2. The goodness of the day brought the post!
    Just by the way… I struggle with poetry… even though I occasionally write verse…

    • I do like the way you dig out some of my old posts. I have to click on them to remember what they were about! I have been at this for going on 9 years now! Have a good week 🙂

      • I love digging… I can’t just visit without finding a good read! Mind you… I go back to some of my earlier posts occasionally… and realise I was on a different planet then! 😉
