     A silly poem of nothing

God I'm slow, so slow of wit,
I seem to sit and sit and sit.
I cannot think of what to write
I've sit here close to half the night.

Now only the dark prevails,
There is no star to guide my sail.
The wind blows and I don't know
In which direction I should go.

I think I'll lay me down to sleep.
Perhaps in dream a start will seep.
And then I'll up and write it down
And wipe away this nonsense clown.

It's the start of things that's hard for me,
That big blank canvas that I see.
But sometimes just a words impart
Will make the pen to flow in start.

So let me think what word above.
Perhaps, perhaps I'll start with love.

'Tis not a silly thing you write
A battle fierce, this poet's plight
I know the truth of what you say
Alas, one word could win the day!

Love is always a good place to start, Sy.
Not a silly piece at all.  Rather enjoyed this one.

Ans simply being able to write of 'nothing' is impressive in itself dear friend!

LOL - I liked this - made me smile and I was quite able to identify...

Sy,

Nobody writes about nothing
More beautifully than you
And that is something for most of us
That's difficult to do
If this poem is really about nothing
Then I can't wait to see
Your little something gnomes
Write lines of poetry
For everything you write seems to
Come right from your heart
If you want to write about something
Love is a good place to start
Love ya,
Liz
