This Summer Calls the Rain to Fall on Me
a blank verse by Mich Samson
This summer calls the rain to fall on me
When tears replace the joy that we have shared.
The droplets gently kiss my tender skin
And you don’t see that they just hide my tears
Because this sunny season brings a lot of joy
But we are near the end of summer, Dear.
The rainy season comes to us so fast
I hope that you will know about my plan
I still prepare to leave and go away
Because I have to live another life
If only there’s a chance to stay with you,
I will but only during summer, Dear.
I wish that we can see each other, Dear.
With smile on face when rain arrives on us.
But now I have to sing a bye to you.

Have you already experienced that you need to write an essay or a poem in your school but you do not know how to start?
Have you experienced to be given a deadline to write a script or an article but no idea comes to your mind?
Have you already tried to write a story but you do not know how to continue or how to finish it with a bang?
If you do, you are not alone.
Sometimes writers cannot think of anything to write about or how to proceed with writing. Many circumstances cause this problem.
I have to be honest that it also happens to me especially when I am so tired and sleepy; when I am hungry, thirsty and feeling exhausted. It also happens when I am engaged in many other activities.
But I do not believe that there is nothing to write about. There is always something to write about. I just need to pamper myself first to let the inspiration come to me.
I need to be kind to my body so that it functions properly.
If I lack sleep and I feel that my mind is very exhausted, of course, I need to sleep first to allow my brain to relax.
Showering and taking a bath is very helpful, too, to relieve the stress and make me feel fresh.
Eating healthy diet and taking vitamins are good way to condition the body.
Moreover, I remember how another writer told me that a great foundation to write is to read and read and read.
A writer is a reader. It is helpful that we have read many other books, articles and literature that can serve as inspiration. It’s not because we copy their write-ups but it’s because we can learn a lot of things from them that improve us as a writer.
As of writing this blog article, I actually feel exhausted because of a week of sleepless nights, office works, meetings and stage performances. I feel that my body is tired and all I want to do is to sleep. But I cannot sleep because I am still on shift in the office so I need to keep myself awake.
I am surprised to be able to write this just to express how I feel right now. I thought I have a writer’s block but having been able to post this, I can say that my writer’s block can be useful, too, to write an article.

Pusong nabagabag, pagsamo’y habag.
At sa lahat-lahat, maraming salamat!
