Out of thin air so blue...

I woke up this morning and there was nothing but air to breathe and bread to eat

Coffee hot and black an empty feeling in my heart a void in my brain

Sure, chores await tasks to be done errands to be run

But, a blank page a blank screen no words yet to be seen vast possibilities asleep

Seize the moment and create?

Start the flow of thought?

Other worlds to be wrought?

Nothing, thin air, tomorrow will you be there?

Will I find the strength to wreak havoc once more?

Will I play with the void?

Maybe. Maybe not.

Nothing is a wonderful start.

Nothing is the end.

"Floating thoughts" begun as iron, discussed as silver, reached the reader's brain as gold, and concluded brilliantly as platinum.

I have learned and enjoyed the reading of a poetic grand.
"Floating thoughts" delivered a building message.

I salute You, Sublime Artist of the VERB!

Gosh! I can certainly relate to this. Seize the moment, I say. Tasks will wait till we're through creating but creative thoughts have a way of fading if we don't act on the impulse. Thanks, Regina, good stuff!
