The following is a poem I wrote recently when trying to force my brain to provide words that could only come from another source.
The Empty Page
I found an empty childless page,
Blank and white and bare
Reflections looking back at me
With an unrelenting glare
I searched for wisdom in my mind
But the canvas remained unclothed
The hidden brilliant thoughts within
Proscribing what’s exposed
Suddenly, the words emerge
With magnificence and splendor
Appearing on the empty page
From a sapient pretender
Poetry seldom comes from thought
We’re mostly not that smart
Reflections that endure the light
Mirror echoes from the heart
Excerpt from the second volume of “Rhymes of Life” to be published this fall.
Have a beautiful day!
