There’s writer’s block that impedes flow.
Then there’s the mighty Roman flotilla that brings flow to a dead stop.
Endeavoring to loosen the constraints and restraints on creativity, I’ve been looking at sites with exercises on making writing time fun, silly, playful again.
Stumbled upon this one: https://thewritepractice.com/fun-writing-exercise/
It’s inactive these days but that posted exercise withstands the passage of time. So here goes writing with no particular rhyme or reason, goal or destination — save silliness.
Migraine ouch! too much sugar
Birthday girl yesterday c’est moi
Say coursing through my veins
Pancakes, syrup thick — like my head
I know better but do it anyway
exceptions on birthdays after all
Coffee drinks heavy with chocolate syrups
whipped cream enough calories for a family of 4 in Rwanda
where I’ve never been and aspire to never go.
Not even if their pancakes and coffee shakes are free
Brownie, vanilla ice cream, chocolate torte
dense but who’s denser me or the torte?
Big cookies, chocolate chunk and oatmeal raisin
Raisin my blood sugar cruisin’ for trouble
all sweets consumed in the spirit of a birthday
I’ve survived one day – hey!
having ascended a Sugar Mountain – thank you Neil Young
for that classic early tune
June by jove my body should be divested of these sugar clumps
I’ll jump for joy to be back in balance
and for now be done with this poetic parlance.
