Sitting in the porch
I sift through my mind
For inspiration to knock.
The creative mind shuts down
And threw the key away
For me to go awry!
Rhymes, Proses, Poems, Stories –
They all seem to have chosen not to come my way,
I look out with a mind,
That is mere blank.
Roses and lilies dancing merrily,
Gentle breeze creating new rhythms,
Plants and trees joining in the party,
A musical mystery for the eyes.
And creativity blooms, once again!
This poem is inspired by Write Tribe’s Festival of Words.

sometimes the muse is right in front of us… and who else could be better than Nature. 🙂 Writer’s block can indeed be so frustrating.
So many times that mind goes blank and then something suddenly sparks an idea. Nature is truly inspirational.
Can’t agree more Vinitha.
Lovely poem, Vinitha. I so agree. Nothing like Nature to inspire us when we feel blocked. I love my birds and flowers. Springtime in Canada is such a wonderfully inspiring time of year.
Nature always has inspiration in store for us 🙂 Lovely poem 🙂
I like the way your poem captures the two key words for the Write Tribe festival. Well done.
Wow! Loved this one, Vinitha! True, 9 times out of 10, Mother Nature comes over to give us a helping hand and get our creative juices flowing!
Creativity thrives in nature, no? Beautifully penned, Vinitha!
Very beautiful, Vinitha:)
Nothing like nature to inspire us, is there? 🙂
