Good one... I love "loblolly pines."

My mind can never be silent when I'm trying to write, but I've found that taking a little time out of each day to deliberately quiet my mind is very helpful to the creative process!

The second line is a wonderful tongue-twister! Immediately I thought of popcorn - a brand called Lolly-gobble-bliss-bombs! Yes! We need to train the mind to quieten into creative mode for the "writing-bliss-bomb" to work!

I too dull on Sundays and Monday mornings are a real drag!! Takes time to get into the groove!!

..silent mind – perfect end note! i haven’t tried senryu before, i wonder if it’s just the same as that of Haiku? hmmn..much shorter ,i think?

Good day!

'loblolly pines' is quite a tongue twister - I'll use that in the wee small hours when I can't sleep.

A perfect expression of writer's block!

"Silent mind" really does clinch it, doesn't it? Very nice Magpie.

Loblolly seems to have touched something in everyone including me! Silent minds? Brilliant.
