By Charles Robert Lindholm 

There’s something
about silence
that breaks
a writer’s block
sitting in the darkness
listening to the clock

Ticking and then tocking
as it slowly
starts to knocking
down the dam
of rocks still blocking
from flowing freely
onto empty pages
yearning to be marked
with ink from your pen
in words
well written
spelling out
the love in your heart

This was a poem written the day before reading DavyD’s “Mail” that touched on the subject of writing with a pen.  Is it possible to write a response poem before reading the original??  I think this may be such an example??



  1. I agree Chuck. Silence is inspiring and noise a definite block to inspiration. Very well put!
