At times it’s hard

to coax them out,

but you persevere nevertheless;

even a nudge is

better than a wink.

On days like this,

though, you don’t want

to try. Thankfully, habit

helps when inspiration fails

and all that comes

out is painful drivel.

Still, drivel it is

till the juices get

flowing and once again

full flight is engaged

and upwards you sail

soaring on writing currents

that take you to

faraway places and mindscapes

that never might have

seen light of day

if not for this

trivial exercise in persistence.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
