The Writer’s Block

January 21, 2010

Sometimes when digging deep in cavernous mines,
beneath the rubble, ‘fore the precious rocks,
your pen may hit upon a useless find –
the cubic shape they call the writer’s block.

Dimensions of these blocks are said to last
in varying length, so prudence must be used.
No manner of impetuous and rash
dislodging efforts free unwelcome cubes.

You ask me how to deal with such a thing,
when really you should see it differently.
For if you see an obstacle, you think
it couldn’t fuel your creativity.

The precious jewels you seek are only found
within the blocks themselves, and not around.
