After a long day when I am tired
when I have been staring at a computer screen to long
when I have been getting nowhere
I tie my shoe laces and then go for a walk,
I walk the street, through the park-lands, over hill
looking at houses, paths, soaking in my surrounding,
And then the day didn’t feel so bad, doesn’t feel so long,
maybe I could get one more project done, I have a few ideas!
Words run through writers like water,
A chaotic mess, but with a few specs of gold,
words pump through me like blood in my veins,
But blood and water are no good if they run dry or remain stagnate,
When I am running short on words I like to got for a long walk,
fire up my internal engine, pump the blood again,
until I return with a flow of words ready to pour out onto the page.
I went for a walk barefoot, so many animals out at night.
The smell of the sea air,
They light up between the trees, stars,
Hear waves when i am getting close
See wallabies bouncing around in their fluffy coats
No shoes on, warm night air,
Bunnies back and forth everywhere
So much life close to the sea
