Anchored, Waiting

I've quoted the following snippet from Cynthia Voigt's A Solitary Blue before, and I may well quote it again—


This had been the pattern of his days 
on the back creek, too: 

he would move the boat out 
until he felt more frightened 
than he had the courage to match; 
then he would anchor and wait.

This has been the pattern of other days in my studio, too: I move my brush about until I feel more    stymied than I have the inspiration to match; then I anchor and wait.
