White Blank

White Blank


It stares out from the screen at me

I stare right back at it

Yes, it says, I am quite blank

And, yes, I feel a git.


I've got no spelling errors

Syntax perfect, yes

I'm just a piece of white blank verse

Examine me, address!


But I've got better things to do

Than look at verse blank white

Despite your perfect spelling and

Your syntax being right


But poet, are you saying

You've given up on me?

My white blank screen's no challenge to

Create your poetry ?


(My screen's making me feel guilty.....)

Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.

White blank verses
Created beautifully on this canvas
You have a world of imagination
Residing in your little lovely head
