Writer’s Block

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 18 October 2020, sublime.

Fandango gives the word “sublime”,
A brilliant choice to make a rhyme,
As I settle down, try to compose,
Anticipating what might flow.

My thinking cap upon my head,
My pencil it is full of lead,
My mug of tea stands piping hot,
But in my head…. there’s not a jot.

I read some poems, that might inspire,
My effort destined to backfire,
These poems singing like a bird,
So why can’t I produce a word?

I think I’ll just give up today,
Things clearly will not go my way,
The only word I find to rhyme,
Appropriately, pantomime!

          1. he has posted quite a bit of choral lately, although I have discovered that the pieces I am drawn to are for piano.
            I was a very good soprano as a child, but I lost interest and stopped studying altogether at age 16. I still enjoy it, but there is lots I don’t know.
            My flashback post this week will be a C20th classical. I think we are about coming to the anniversary.
