On a serious case of artist's block after seeing the work of Ai Weiwei

Writer's block

I have developed writer's block

I don't know what to say

Camber Clouds with no deep meaning

And underneath, the cause of this?

The art of Ai Weiwei

Dogs allowed from 1st October

His work is full of purpose

With meaning through and through

But I do random shooting....

 it's the best that I can do.

Interpret as you will

If you ask me for my meaning

I get tied up in knots;

It all gets rather heavy

And I seem to lose the plot.

Most times I take a picture

with no intent in mind

It just feels right to do so;

I'm not the arty (f****)  kind.


Enough said; hopefully I'll get over it soon.

And I have no regrets at all about seeing Ai Weiwei at the Royal Academy.

It was so good that I am going to go back and see it all over again tomorrow.


  1. Don't be a fool..

    He feels just as you do..

    Don't be an idiot, slave..


    1. thanks Paddy. Just a little blip; getting over it now......

  2. Well said Caroline..we all feel this way sometimes I think..Artists are just the people who don't give up.. ;) Tenatious we are.

    1. thanks Teresa. I'll just keep plugging away.....
