Blank pages

72157600071026423_ae9d03174d_l

The new journal seemed

To taunt me

Making  me reach for it

Over and over.

I find myself searching

For it often.

Keeping it close at hand.

Just in case you know?

Who knows when words

Will spill from a thought

And jump into poems.

So white and pure

The pages wait

For ink.

The journal doesn’t care

What ink puts on it’s pages

All it cares about

Is the ink

Filling the journal

The journal wants to be full.

Blank pages need fed.

Ink is the blood of poetry

Born on blank pages..
