An old poem of mine of ’09,  for some reasons modified & posted a fresh;

 A  Poet’s Block…!

A poet was on the operation table,
Undergoing angiography,
Doctor doing the angiography,
Was taken by sympathy,
Doc knew, being a poet, patient had no much money,
Told the poet, who, poor fellow, there too
Was lost thinking about his poems & poetry.
“Dear Sir, to tell you, I am really very sorry,
I notice in your angiography,
You are suffering from a major block,
In your heart’s main artery,
And that is my real cause of worry”
Poet in half consciousness got delighted & responded,
“Doctor, that has been my big worry too,
Thank you doctor for finding out,
That this writer’s block, I am badly suffering,
Is actually lodged in my heart’s main artery,
Not allowing me to create good poetry,
I am thankful to you; you need not feel sorry,
I am happy you found it, now please
Remove it in a hurry,
And from this writer’s block,
please make me free….!

  1. Sir,
    No insurance cover for this block ….so it is expensive to remove .
    Good one well put out ….
    sarala .

    We all poets have faced this writer’s block some time or another.
    But can physical doctors unerstand and cure this?!

    Thank you so very much for your comment on this posting.
    When an author suffers from what is known as ” a writer’s block” he gets preoccupied thinking about it at all times & about his inability to pen poems which would satisfy him; not realizing that it is Godsend time to take a break, not to be impatient but let go; enjoy reading & commenting on poems of other authors passionately. The block gets cleared automatically in due time

    SN ji
    Thank you. सही कहा
    दिल बड़े हो गए तो रास्ते भी बड़े हो जाते हैं
    जाम अपनेआप clear हो जाते हैं 🙂

    Dr. Paliwal ji
    Thanks for the comment.
    But Dr please clarify more, does this mean you were unwell for sometime in the interim or were just suffering from a writer’s block, a mood presently I am enjoying.

    Very Nice & touching…
    May I have the address of that doctor ? I think I am also suffering from poet’s block now a days, which is definitely blocking coming poems.
    Thanks for your observation & prescription Sir !!!

    Thanks so very much for your comments and empathy with the suffering
    I understand the doctor also since stopped his practice & is practicing poetry 🙂

    Very nice and innovative! Really enjoyed reading it! Stands true here that “if had opened the heart to friends, would not have needed a doctor to open it”
