LOOKING FOR MY MUSE

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 26, 2015, 10:19 AM

Hello my friends and watchers...

I have been picking up my pen, getting my clipboard with the legal pad on it, and attempting to write a poem.  No matter what I do, I just cannot come up with anything! I've tried playing music, and lighting incense.  I've tried writing while having a glass of wine, and also tried after meditating.  I have tried reading some classics, including Shakespeare and Blake.  I've tried praying and using Oracle cards to help.  None of these things have worked! I have decided to try and find out what the cause of such a prolonged inability to write is.  One of my strongest suspicions is that it is some medicine I take being the cause.  Resperidol is a strong anti-psychotic which I take for my PTSD.  My wife tells me that after starting Resperidol, I am a bit slower in my thinking and even some of my motor skills are slower.  Another culprit could be Gabapentin.  This is a drug I take for anxiety and panic attacks.  I take it 3 times a day, and I am unsure whether or not it has anything to do with my not being able to write poetry.  I have decided to stop taking these meds just long enough to see if I can write again.  I know it is bad to stop my medicine, and my doctor would kill me if he knew I was going to do this.  Poetry is my life, and is what keeps me grounded.  I have to try...
I want to thank all of my friends that follow me here, and continue to support me, even though I am in a dry spell.  It means the world to me and is what keeps me here.  

 My continued prayers to my friend Samira, Birgit, Dee, Chas, and Flori :pray:

To my friends and watchers I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week ahead... :icontimmy64plz:

POETRY CORNER

:iconblacksand459:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :iconblacksand459:

County FairThe easy-laughing, roughneck farm boys,
Darkened tans the color of railroad ties.
Strolling the county fairs on July nights
With their girls and their buds.
Carrying on the traditions
Year after year.
From the North and South,
To the East and West,
They arrive in their pickups and hotrods
For an evening under the stars.
Adrift in the scents of popcorn and elephant ears,
A hint of diesel from the Cat gennies in their trailers,
And the co-mingling of aftershave and perfume.
Hear the laughing shrieks from the Tilt-a-Whirl
And the thousand conversations, flowing together
In a comfortable noise, a hum as familiar as
Whirring blades in June.
AndromedaHere in the eternal green
in the Andromeda Airport Lounge
we fly the galactic skies
sit back and relax
have some coffee or juice
we are glad to have you here
all is well over there
outside the windows it is Sunday
it is always pleasant
we...there is a scri...
we ruh, ruhh
there is nowhere to hide
all the fragrance smells like jet fuel
and styrofoam roses
in a naked house
where the people are cardboard
and there are only lights and wires
in the naked house
and the neighbors were warned
that no one was home
no one was ever home
there
herrr...he..re re re
don't you want to you
go to here you
don't
wel Androm A Lounge
we have you
759That long stretch
the long sound
sailing into the nightwaves
into the neon blue fire
of the Vegas Strip
into the black macadam highway
in the cold desert
the chilled midnight air of freedom
and a six pack of Schlitz
riding beside you
on that vinyl airframe
that radio dial on souper jazz
rolling into the 759 stretch
of 1000 Octane Boost
set to dynamite your life
right out from under your righteous smile
and see the dawn to-morrow my friend
cause right now
you got miles to roll baby
you got distance to travel
you got's to get there, man
well, where you goin' anyway?
"do you know, where you're going to
do you like the things that life is showing you
where are you going to
do you know?"

once you reach the Terminal Station
where the road no longer lives on
and the lights are dead
and the crows eat corn
that Jimmy cracked
then...
man, it's all 759 from here on out
it's high-powered soul
on the night train baby
the engineer is Ransom Jack
and he a dangerous fellow
oh yeah

Summer Eveningone drop on the lip of a cup
poised between water and land
flood or drought

A maple tree evening
darkness settling
that familiar curtain
on a gentleman's sunset walk
lowering over the baseball game
that lives in the radio
the roar of exuberance and joy
living in the radio waves
hardwood floors
hard barefoot heel thumping
thrilling to that effervescent spritz feeling
after leaving a shower, wrapped in a towel
in boyhood summer eventide
as a dry, Nebraska-voiced narrator
as sturdy a foundation like the naval grey cinder block walls
of an elementary school
briefs us comfortably on news of the day
we travel to far-flung lands
the Horn of Africa as birds fly across whitecaps
and it is a sturdy background to the evaporating water
of my shower-warmed skin
outside, it is legendary
the oaks, hickories, maples, and elms
stand quietly, measuring the sun on his track
against their internal clocks
which run deep into the earth
they note the passersby on this dirt road
not far from town at al

Your fairy is called Oak Goblinwitchgreen dragon animated avatar by ftourini
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in forests of oak and lime trees.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She decorates herself with leaves and berries. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
