Sometimes inspiration pours
like water from a hose
full force, abundant supply
Then there are times
when the paper is stark white
and the inkwell is bone dry
I’ve been panicky and wondering
how long this drought will last
and when it departs
will it stay in the past?
Of course, there’s no way to tell
or would I hear chiming bells?
Well, one thing is for sure
Hot flashes cook brain cells!
This was inspired by my wonderful blogging sis, Deb,
as she fed me the closing line. (Thanks, Deb)
Ladies, I hope you enjoy
and Men… 🙂

I don’t know. Your muse seems to be working just fine.
Well, with fun stuff, but I’m drawing a blank on serious…”works” in progress! Thanks, Joe!
YOUR words always bring a smile to my face. Love the new header picture. Keep up the good work. Have a wonderful day Lauren. 🙂 Renee
Thanks, Renee, always happy to bring a smile and the header is from our county fair last year. I thought it would be nice for summer so thank you! I hope you’re having a great day, too! 🙂
YOU are most welcome. What a lovely header picture. Nice! WE had so much sunshine on our first day of summer. Long over do as we have had too much rain out this way.
😆 yes hot flashes do that..Debbie is just too funny
what a fun ending of the poem
but its true i too have those panic attacks
hugs to both the lovely girls 🙂
I couldn’t resist when I heard that line; had to write a sequel! Hang in there, too, and we’ll share hugs along with the cool breezes! 🙂
Ha! I love it, Lauren! It’s great when we can inspire one another. 🙂
I really loved the poem. Nothing wrong with your muse abilities right now. Brain cells…still got enough.
Thanks, Deb, this was definitely fun! xoxo
Oh I am laughing so much! Of course not, your writing is wonderful and you share such experience that we all have had or will! Love!! Chill! xoxoxoxoLinda
Oh, Linda, I’m happy to hear I made you laugh again! And thanks for your kind, kind words; they’re very encouraging when I feel in a dry (serious) spell…and I will try to “chill!” Love your choice of words! Today is the first day of summer and it feels like it, but I’m a survivor! Hee,hee! Love and hugs to you!
And then they want equality! 😛
Oh, Ben…. 🙂 🙂
Tongue firmly in cheek, if course. 😀
Completely relate. took me 3 hours to write today…..great poem 🙂 Sam
Thanks, Sam, and I find it hard to believe it took you that long, because I am in awe of your writing, my friend~I appreciate your kind words, too! This one’s good for another chuckle! 🙂 xx
Sometimes it only takes me a few minutes, sometimes an hour, sometimes days….it depends on how long it’s been brewing, how deep I have to dig, and how clear my head is. So many changes yesterday with the end of school year for boys, etc. I was having a hard time at it. HUGS 🙂
I understand end of school year, crazy times, for sure…we’re past that and now they’ve got summer jobs and volunteer commitments..just breathe and HUGS back to you! Have a peaceful day~xx
Yes those brain cells burn rapidly. But you seem to have found a cool spot to squeeze this nice write out. 😀
Awww…thanks, Kim, another poem good for a smile or laugh! Thanks for your kind words, Kim, and have a cool day! 🙂
Does this mean you are hot to trot? LOL Oh I feel your pain! Been there, done that. I’m not having hot flashes anymore but the well is still pretty dry around here…
But your words seem to be flowing…think of ice water! 🙂
Hee,hee, Jeannie! I’ve been fine with the fun stuff; it’s the serious where the well has been dry. I’m working on a few, though, so we shall see! Hope you’re doing well and yes, ice water sounds wonderful! 🙂
Let it go… then it shall flow, my friend. My poetry comes in great floods and then stops, and I know this is because something else in my soul is needing my attention. It always comes back… and your flow will return greatly refreshed. I think of it as my poetry taking a break to re-group, re-fresh and take stock of the things I have learned so that it can re-emerge expressing that growth and change.
This poem’s great, by the way! Very cool 😀 xox
Your poem inspired me to post one I’d written in February, but left in a book, waiting for the right time to see light. So… this one is dedicated to you 🙂 http://wp.me/p1kKrU-dH xo
Enjoyed your poem a lot, Lauren, dunno about the men–haven’t heard of anyone having hot flashes like us.
Thanks, Cynthia, I just had to get the humor on paper (screen)! 🙂 Thank goodness it will pass, though, right??
