Writer's Block

When you get writer's block
go for a walk

find a friend 
have a talk

blow bubbles
spin a top

count stars
watch birds flock

whatever you do 

don't stare 
at a blank page

as the clock
goes tick-tock.

I don't really get writer's block so much as writer's fatigue.

I can sit here all day writing things, but it's when I try to stick to a topic, I eventually get mentally fatigued and have to walk away or risk it coming out unlike something I'd write. I can still come up with words, but the words will rhyme less, make less sense, etc.

Good poem and structure.?

You read my mind Don! This poem begs the question, "What do you do when you get writer's block?"

Spot on! Unless you actually want to write a poem about a blank page, clean sheet, etc
