I’m retiring now to my palace of wisdom?

Intoxicated by words, not at all tongue tied

Perhaps we could all assemble and create our own Fiefdom?

Probably a daft idea on my part – I’ll leave that for you to decide.

 

Writing I believe is as complex as you make it

Or am I being too flippant by making such a remark?

Once you put your mind to it I’m sure there is no limit –

To what can be achieved once you ignite the spark.

 

Never having been coached in the art of writing

I often wonder if I had been, what could I have achieved?

Perhaps I could have written something Novel or exiting?

Retiring now in my palace of wisdom, feeling quite relieved.

Expose yourself to the reader.

C. J. Black

Words should flow freely through my quill
I should not be writing against my will.

But that is how it is this night
Is there comfort for my plight?

My den can be such a lonely place
I must write something to fill this blank space.

I know once I set my mind to writing
Something will emerge, it may not be overly exciting.

If it were, now there would be a plus
This would leave me feeling quite nonplussed.

At this point, with the candle melting slow
Filled with what could only be described as an inner glow

A burning desire you might say, to satisfy this need
Failure, not being part of my vocabulary – means I will succeed.

So, now as I sit – a word in your shell like ear
Never allow it enter your head – that dreaded word called fear.

Words will flow freely through your quill
You’ll write with confidence, not against your will.

With this proverb I am at one –
“Well begun is half done”

Cha Sara Sara.
