A Lifer’s Block

What do you do when you are fresh out of ideas,

with a blank page staring at you?
You take a long walk,
preferably bare feet, in the grass still wet from morning dew.
And if it is night, you breathe in the subtle yet unmistakeable
scent of the Queen of the Night.
Or you cut open a juicy, ripe mango
oozing of sweetness and pulp,
and relish it to the very last drop.
Or you look into your son’s eyes,
as he rattles on his usual gibber-gabber,
and think how much you will miss it,
when he is all grown up.
Or you open an album full of old photos,
look at the faces of your childhood friends,
and wonder why you lost touch?
Or you dig out old family heirlooms,
precious not because of what they are,
but because of what memories they hold.
What do you do when you are fresh out of ideas,
and your whole life ahead of you?
You live in these tiny moments of joy
strewn all around you,
And sooner or later, you will find the inspiration,
to help you fill that blank page, that future life anew.
