Stuck for ideas

Overload of thoughts,

Stuck for ideas

Some days, I am stuck for ideas.

To call it an overload of ideas might be a better way to put it.

Unique ones come seldom alone.

Coming together as at the rush of children on hearing the school bell.

Knowing I must decide, where to start. Doesn't help.

First one then the next,

Or writing in parallel, which one first.

Reasonable thoughts would stop somewhere.

Instead, I grumble and make more coffee.

Denying the urgency, playing the poet.

Eventually something will happen.

As soon as I have started more will follow.

Surely there must be a tap to shut for a while.
