Sit back and let it be.
Recite, “Aware, aware.
Relax, relax.”; await
till the muse delivers.

A good remedy for writer’s block, no doubt! (But then you don’t seem to have that problem…?)

I wrote a poem on 12th October 1988, then nothing until 11th July 1999, the nothing until 10th July 2005. Ideas arrive more frequently these days, but don’t let’s tempt Fate/The Muse. 😉
Knock on wood! (I’m glad your muse returned to you… Mine goes AWOL quite often.)
Not anything we appear to have much control over.
Sometimes inspiration just dries up…but for me it always returns when strong emotions (love for someone, something) are kindled. I suppose that’s key for most of us? Some are inspired by anger but only indirectly. (i.e. anger at those who pollute the earth stems from love for earth, etc.)

I believe the traditional response is “Who’s there?”
Er … “Ivanna who?”
Ivanna pinch the universe and see if it’s just dreaming. 😉
Did you know that in England “pinch” is a slang word for steal? Gives a whole new level of possible meaning for your comment for me.
Shur did know that but wasn’t thinking about it. Wow, I’m clever, eh? 😆 And yes, a whole new level of meaning! Gotta keep me balance up here.
