The Key To Solving Writer’s Block

Photo by Eberhard 🖐 grossgasteiger on Unsplash

When the mind’s a canvas white
And you have nothing to write
The only way to start
Is to let your mind into the prism of your heart

And let it dive into its deepest chambers-
filled with myriad hidden treasures
and take its pick-
That, my dear, is the trick-

To find your muse.
Your lines let them be loose,
and flow like a river
and let them find a way to mirror every colour-

The warm yellows and the cold blues
The flaming reds and all the in-between hues
The calming green and the shadowy violet
That is the nugget-

To painting your canvas bright;
and making it airy and light.
Add in streaks of indigo and orange
even if it appears strange

For life’s a palette of colours all,
and if your writing is to stand out tall
then it must, like a rainbow, be
and the reader surely pauses to read.
