Words To Find

Sitting here, 

Pen in hand,

A room in a house,

In no-man’s land.

Thoughts to mind,

Unleash, unwind,

Pen to paper, 

Words to find.

There’s food in the cupboard,

Even more in the drawer;

There’s stock in abundance:

Write notes, score.

Letters flying around in my head,

Jumbled confusion,

Lines left unsaid.

Ideas I now beckon,

Forth from the depths:

Subconscious creations,

Unchained loose kept.

The way now is open,

Quite tidy, quite clear:

March onward and forward,

Success, sweet and sincere.

Whales in Waikiki ~

I am having somewhat of a Writer’s block just now. The words are just not there or rather they have gone quiet on me. Does that resonate with anyone?  I am sure they will return when they are good and ready but for now I shall share some of what I have seen.  The picture here is the tail of a Humpback Whale swimming off the coast of Waikiki, Hawaii. I have been lucky enough to visit the Hawaiian Islands a few times over the years, and have to say going out to see the Humpbacks is a wonderful experience! These mammoth creatures of the oceans swim to these warmer waters to mate, and to give birth to the next generation. I read today that Whales are associated with solitude and compassion, and also to unbridled creativity. It is said that the exhalation from the blowhole symbolises the release or freeing of one’s own creative energies. I thought therefore that looking at my image, and remembering my encounters with these beautiful beings, my creativity may somehow be awakened once more so that my thoughts may flow freely once more. Just for the record it was not easy for me to capture the image, as I have no sea legs as it were and was therefore pleased with the capture. Hope you like the image as much as I do.
