There are no words
to be penned
They caught a ride
on the last gust
of wind

A one-way ticket

Emptiness settles in

I’ve tried pulling
consonants and vowels
from anywhere and
hoping to reunite
them with emotions

but they’ve slipped
through my fingers
only to land on a
another poet’s
blank piece of

  1. Well this is a start Lauren; you have penned some words very well. I am feeling pretty much the same as I think I mentioned to you before. But it’s no good forcing it; I’ve been trying and it all ends up in the bin. I’m sure we will find our way again soon. ❤️ Xxx

    1. Thanks so much, Chris! I’ve only written a few and one of them you just saw on fb. 🙂 Isn’t it funny how that bin gets more action than our journals sometimes? Well, our muses will come when they’re good and ready. As for my blog, I’m undecided. It had been a month since I posted and I think I’m slowly fading out but not completely.
      I’ve decided to return to school (no more talk) so I’m taking the steps needed for that, now that I’m done with both of my books. There will be more writing on the horizon but I don’t know any specifics. Anyway, just thought I’d fill you in since I’m not spending much time in blogland. Sending love and hugs! xo ♥

  2. There are countless thoughts floating around, Lauren, and many of them are keenly looking forward to find expression through your creative space… I am waiting…best wishes… Raj.

    1. Aww, Raj, you always write such beautiful comments that are warming to the heart, thank you! I’m slowing down in blogland so I’m sorry if I’ve missed your posts but I’ll try to visit soon. I’m tackling other goals in life, which are taking me away from the computer. I hope all is well with you, my friend…

    1. Thanks a bunch, Binky! I’ve only written a few poems and have slowed down here in blogland, as I’m starting to focus on other things in life…hope all is well in Wombania!

    1. In its own time, you’re right, Geraldine! Wishing you all the same, my friend…I’m not blogging as much while focusing on other goals now. But I won’t hide completely. ♥

      1. I have been pretty scarce myself. Life comes in fits and spurts and waves now and then, and it gets tough to maintain an on-line life too. Happy Easter!

    1. Thanks, Michelle; it’s nice to know I’m not alone. 🙂 I’m fading out of blogland, working on returning to school (in my youthful age) 🙂 so I’m sorry for missing your posts but I’ll visit you this week. Hope all is well! ♥

      1. Lauren, good for you. Even when you go back to school, I hope you’ll stop back in blogland once in a while to let us know how you are doing. Hugs

      2. Thanks so much, Michelle! I don’t think I’ll leave it completely and I do miss you and many others. It’s just time to re-focus my energy in a different direction. 🙂 Hugs back to you, my friend…

    1. Well, these were the only words I could find, Ian! 🙂 Thank you so much! I’m slowing down in blogland but will still be around a little. Sorry for missing your posts but I’ll be over to read soon. Hope all is well!

    1. Thanks so much for your beautiful comment, Phil. I may not be posting as much because I’m working on other goals that take me away from the computer. But I appreciate your visit and I will visit you soon, too! I wish you the same also!

    1. Thanks, Scott! These were the only words that came while in a dry spell. It’s hard to believe I haven’t posted in a month. I’m slowing down here in blogland but am undecided as to what I’ll do permanently. 🙂

  3. How paradoxical Lauren Dear,I have never felt before such emptiness filled with quiet,dormant thoughts and feelings trying to find way out … Hope you and yours are keeping well my lovely friend!Sending warm spring hugs and smiles your way 🙂 ✿) ♡ ,Doda xxx

    1. I wrote this during a dry spell, Doda, feeling like I’ll never find words to write again. 🙂 Of course, they do come again but in their own time! I’m doing well, just busy with other things and fading out of blogging. I hope you’re doing well, too, my friend, and I apologize for missing your posts but I’ll be over your way soon…sending many hugs and blessings your way, too! ♥ xoxo

      1. But still,it is so meaningful … It’s the way you described through the verses your flat feeling.I’m fine,thank you,but as busy as always and left behind … I started playing catch up again,join me to make it easier … Don’t push yourself,take your time because it works like the dry spell you mentioned above.We are not in the same mood all the time … I wish you and yours a Happy Easter from the bottom of my heart while sending love and blessings your way 🙂 ❤ ,Doda xxx

      2. Aww, Doda, you are so sweet and right, too, about not all being in the same mood…I wish you a very blessed Easter, as well, my friend, and I will see you soon. I’ll probably have more time for visiting blogs this weekend. Hugs, smiles and love to you! ♥

  4. Lauren we all have our reason and it seems not many of us serving our blogs now a day but that is not to mean we don’t think on each other and as you see I come to check you OK… watching you x

    1. Thanks for checking on me, Doron! I may only post once a month or so and visit when I can…this break is lasting a little longer; just focusing on other things. Maybe there’s something in the air and it’s contagious! 🙂 Take care, my friend. Hugs and blessings!

  5. Think of the dry spells this way: dry wit is still wit! This piece is a perfect example of how talking about the difficulty of writing something interesting can lead to an interesting piece of writing in itself! Spring is springing out of you even when you don’t notice, my dear! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Kathryn! It’s amazing how we go through dry spells, feeling like we’ll never find those words to write again and then there they are. 🙂 I’m not blogging as often right now and not sure if I’ll return to the same momentum. So sorry for missing your posts, my friend..I’ll try to visit very soon. I’m working on other things in life and one is returning to college in the fall, which I’m prepping for now. 🙂 I’m having fun on fb and that’s about it. Maybe a monthly blog post will be it for awhile. Hope you’re doing well and life is treating you kindly in TX! Sending hugs! ♥ xo

    1. The optimistic way of looking at things! Thanks, Geo! Hope all is well with you. I’m actually not blogging as often now; just busy with other tasks at home. I may post once a month, if anything. 🙂 Take care!

I appreciate your thoughts!
