Were there occasions free of blight?

contrite (caused by or showing sincere remorse)
erudite (characterized by great knowledge)
tektite (small glassy bodies produced by the impact of meteorites on the earth's surface)
nephrite (a form of jade)

Flight Of Write enhancing the bite
Advancing together to great heights
Snugly comforting stars and stripes
Anticipating Fourth of July delights

Looking back at triggers of contrite
Were there occasions free of blight?
Writing exhaustively seemingly erudite
With ideas strewn about like tektites

Knocking the mind incessantly to incite
Creative juices brewing hoping to extradite
Shines of the elegance of green nephrite
Against writer's block sadly none to excite

Karin's aka Outlawyer at Real Toad's - flight of write
Bjorn's at d'Verse's OpenLinkNight #199  -  announcing summer break
