~*~
An empty page,
Just sitting there,
Staring with
Unseeing eyes,
Waiting for an
Imprint upon its
Blank face to
Give meaning
To its existence.

Whether the words
Be of love or pain,
Or sun or rain,
It matters not.
To feel passion
Drip from quill,
Would thrill its
Pale and thirsty skin,
Thereby lending
Importance to its
Mediocrity.

Tho' devoid of
Expression,
It taunts me with its
Silence.
Patiently awaiting
Some stroke of genius
To give form
To a life that
Was meant
To be.
~*~

That is uncanny that we posted poems at the same time and on a similar theme!

Goodnight!

EA,

With writing, you must wait on so many things...your muse, your time, your pen...

Obviously you have that patience as your verses are ALWAYS so beautiful.

As for me, I am still learning!

Hugs to you,
Patricia

Ye be so self-effacing, Dear One! Ye knowest not the power of thine own pen!

This poem practically wrote itself! The empty page must have been thirstier than usual and really put the screws to my muse! LOL

An empty page can be beautiful
just in the fact that it waits
for something just like this
to grace its vellum.

(big hugggssssssss) Oh Linda, this is so very true, sweet friend, I've never really had writers block but always when I write something and look back over it I know it is not finished and always have to ponder exactly what would make it final! (sigh) I love this, sweet friend, God Bless You and you always know how tyo paint upon the canvas, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Linda, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
