I’ve lost my passion
I hope only for a while
Words flow less freely
Both mouth and mind are tongue-tied
Which causes me such great pain
Perhaps I need rest
Time to think and gather thoughts
Away from the screen
Putting pen back to paper
Maybe the old ways are best

Breaks are always good!
Indeed they are, thanks my friend.

TODAY…IS A SLOW DAY FOR ME….WHY MY NUMBERS TOOK A JUMP, I HAVE NO IDEA! I COULD USE REST AS WELL—GETS TOUGH WITHOUT ENOUGH!!!!
Thanks for the re-blog Jonathan, you know that I appreciate it and your ongoing support. I will be back in a bit after I catch my breath. See ya soon my friend. 🙂
Say hi to “Alcapulco” for me…or wherever you’ll be to get your passion back! 🙂 Far AS I KNOW…we’ll be awaiting!
Moving thoughts, Dom… this happens to me more often that I’d like to admit.
Thanks Lori, I really haven’t taken a break in over 2 years and I think I just need a little time, but I will be back.
a break is good sometimes.. let’s you come back with new eyes and a clear mind 🙂 I take mini breaks once a month.. a day or a weekend off… need the recharge.
Sounds like you need a break. Hope you get some much needed R&R.
I really do need a bit of R&R, but I will be back. I may use this time to focus on the novel that I’ve started writing and work on the book of poetry that I’ve also started, but never finished.
Enjoy and good luck. Key thing is to relax and let the stress fade away. 🙂
Thanks Charles, I know that you can relate. 🙂
In that case, take a nap in my honor. 😉
I did take a nap as you are aware, but the muse in me is starting to get a bit restless. 🙂
What is it with muses and interrupting naps? 😀
Great question…they keep whispering in my head, either that or I’m just going crazy. 🙂
Aren’t all artists at least a wee bit looney?
I suppose they are I guess that’s what makes them unique. 🙂
Doesn’t this happen to everyone? Look around refresh, and step back in! 🙂
Oh I will, I just need to step back for a bit and maybe work on some other projects that I have already started but haven’t finished. Thanks William for the encouragement.
We’ll be here.
Thanks Dan, I’ll be back in a little while.
Hope you pull through it soon.
I will be back, I just need to step away for a bit. Thanks my friend.
Yes is the answer to that question. I’ve always called it “Away from the Machine”, and it’s always a worthwhile retreat…
In the 2+ years I have been writing here on WordPress I really haven’t taken much of a break, but now I think is the time.
Perhaps. 🙂 I’ve wondered the same from time to time.
Well I think this is my time, I just feel that a break is in order. Thank you for your support and I will be back.
I love the last line. Indeed, sometimes the old ways are best.
Indeed they are I believe. I find that some of my best writing comes when I put pen to paper first.
Not a bad idea, Dominic, to give it a rest for a bit. What you express happens to most of us every once in awhile. And then, once again, it’s like THOUGHTS or SHUT UP, YOU ( two of my earlier poems!)…..
… If I can add, come back soon!!!
I will be back my friend, I think I just need a little break to recharge.
SO many of us have followed that path! Nicely written!
I know I’m not alone, I just think it’s time to take a little break and giving me time to work on some other projects.
That sounds like a brilliant idea! There are so many people who love your work, I for one have enjoyed your viewpoints on life as you hit the core, pretty much every time. We all need to stand back. stand down and learn from those techniques to better stand on our own feet. You will come out refreshed and all your writing will do is improve. Follow your great idea and we will all be there when you return!
It will come back. Been through this and for me it seems to be a time of reinspiration, so to speak.
I know that it will come back, I think that I will use this time to work on some projects that I have been wanting to do or complete. I will be back, but I think that I just need so time to recharge.
Bless you, my friend!!
Thank you Carol, I am about to return as I’m feeling quite a bit more inspired, I just need a little time. Blessing to you my friend. 🙂
We all do sometimes!
We certainly do, thanks Carol. 🙂
I’m sure it’s only taken a short vacation. Muses get tired too…it’ll come back rested and ever more passionate.
Dom, I haven’t been at this for very long. In fact I’m still in the honeymoon phase of my relationship with writing. Luckily I’m a pretty quick study so I’ve learned to embrace the “block”. For me it’s actually nothing more than a breeding ground for thoughts, plans, ideas and more greatness to come!
By the way I love your blog and your writing style.
Oh I have blocks quite often and generally just write through them. This time I just need to take a couple weeks off to recharge my batteries so to speak. Sorry for the very late reply.
Dom. I feel the same way. I often need to close the computer and start writing in a notebook to connect with deeper feelings. Thank you, as usual, for your sincerity and honesty.
Thank you Kate, it’s nice to know that I’m not alone. 🙂

Thank you so much for the kind re-blog my friend, I appreciate it.
You’re Very Welcome.. .
