The morning sang a lovely tune
I’ve not heard in a while
Light through the window panes
cast a magical time.

Off the bed, I bounced
landing on waltzing feet.
At last I had the gift I asked
a quiet night, a restful sleep.

Finally, I got to write a little poem again.ย  It has been a challenge to blog lately both for lack of time and inspiration.ย  It feels like the words have dried out and the few I have do not make any sense. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  This piece was written for DVerse’s Quadrille prompt – Bounce.ย  ย It was inspired by theย  light feeling I had when I woke up this morning – no head aches, no bleary eyes, no heaviness.ย  I had a solid 8 hour sleep and I was very thankful for that.

I hope that this post jumpstarts my writing again.ย  It can be a little frustrating to want to write and come up with nothing that is passably ok, at the very least.ย  Oh well.

The photos here were taken during ourย  recent vacation in Sebec, Maine where we endured daytime temperatures in the negative teens at their lowest.ย  I should say that we weathered the freezing freezing cold (if only to be able to link this post with WPC’s challenge for the week – Weathered.ย  The photos were taken the morning after theย  blizzardย ofย  January 4, 2018.ย  I think Sebec got 16 inches of snow, if I recall correctly.

Thank you for coming by. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Fear not the writers block, it happens to all of us. Just relax and remember what Maya Angelou said: “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
