When good men do nothing
Neville said:

having worked within the diverse field of mental health I was very much involved in harm reduction .. I always found that members of the general public often struggled to understand the positive risk taking that this almost always involved.... Good on ya Andrew.... Neville

Andrew - no need at all to be sorry for this well-written lament on the absence of Muse - -- applause for a write that rhymes so eloquently despite the so -called writers block. Looking forward to your poem on rain........

Surprisingly ANDREW your muselessness has resuited in a POEM of fine STRUCTURE ~ Five balanced Quatrains with a consistent Rhyme Pattern aaaa bbbb etc ! BUT alas the SUBJECT is lacking ! A lament on the missing muse as one would lament a Lost Love ! HOWEVER what it lacks in SUBSTANCE is more than compensated by STRUCTRE ~ so all in all an interesting and amusing POME ! However as a culinary expert (Lecturer in Food Science) I must take umbrage at the denigration of my Friend APRICOT ! If one plucks them from the TREE for instant consumtion Al fresco ~ The Peach might just have a slight edge ! BUT I (BRIAN) have had occassion in this last week to cook two *One Pot Casseroles* the first based on LAMB and the second CHICKEN. In addition to (different) appropriate vegetables etc I included DRIED APRICOTS in both Dishes to be served with boiled & buttered whole baby new potatoes (think about it). My guests (Foodies) on both occasions said how beautifully the APRICOT had ameliorated the organoleptic quality of the dish. Had I used PEACH it would have disintergrated and dissapeared witout trace ~ I rest my case !

Blessing & Peace & Muse Restoration
Yours as always ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

Writers block, me think she visited me, for I can\'t put two fruits together either today. No peaches, apricots, no parsnips, cherries, or turnips either, and neither wetter or better.
Now what was I going to say - AHHH WELLL!!!!!!!!!!!

A perfect expression of that feeling we all get from time to time, sometimes a lack of inspiration can be the inspiration itself!

I got to cope with a 7-syllable word this time of the morning - inevita-wotsit. It will use up 99% of me brain cells for the day. lol.

It is such a beautiful poem. Thank you so much for posting it. I really enjoyed it. My favorite lines are: A waiting hand when I\'m left behind / My morning when I dream the night. So beautiful, so moving... The images are unforgettable... Thank you.

Your words painted the pain of past
Stories when heard one feels aghast
The cause then, still exists even now
Try as we must, we don\'t know how
