                              A Blank Sheet of Paper
I wanted to write a poem today.
Can't think of a darn thing to say.
instead of taking up your time with
humor, religion or sorrow.
Good-bye for now.
Hope my mind comes back tomorrow.

Very Cute, you didn't have writer's block at all!
Reviewed by Melissa Mendelson (Reader) 10/11/2010
Blank pages speak to me, a life unfinished. All I need are the words to tell of what I'm thinking, feeling, but never force the pen. Just stare into that white abyss and wait. Your poetry will come like the beautiful piece above.

You have accomplished what you are looking forward to in this poem--within this poem. It is very well thought of and written, thank you, Mary.

I agree with Sharon.
Don't think of it as a blank page but a huge possibility.
I must admit that was a cute resignation if in fact that is what it is.
I believe you have me to write a poem like that.
God bless,

Mary, the title of your poem took me into a whole different direction than you intended. For me it wasn't that your muse had 'gone missing', but rather rekindled in me the 'wonder of that blank page'... I do so love it when the page is empty and I've yet to fill it with whatever pops out of my head.
Also I came to your site because of your reply on another. When asked why I write... you said, "because I can". This started a discussion between my friend and I. I won't go into it here. But you see, you never know where your words will go.

Giggle....this one is tooooo cute, Mary! I've been there so many times...just staring at the paper and nothing comes together. Write on poet!!!

Oh how frustrating it is! I so loathe when I get a block and can't find my muse anywhere ... she often misbehaves and leaves without saying a single word! I empathize. Hugs, Elizabeth

Short, sweet, and to the point. Well done,Mary, or should I say, well, done Mary?

Reviewed by Sandra Corona 1/13/2009
Actually your mind gave us something to ponder. ALL things are important ... even a blank page. Remember though that this page is NOT entirely blank.

God bless,

Is that not the truth of what! I think all writers have days when the inspiration just overflows and the next, it can dry up like a corked empty bottle. Very well put and OH, so true! I appreciate your minimalist style on this poem. You say much in a short space.

Cute write Mary. Yes, it does happen to all of us from time to time. But sometimes it is better to write nothing at all than to write something badly. And thanks for reviewing my latest poem, MOVED. Your comments are very much appreciated. Have a wonderful day and God bless.

So deep and poetic! There is such a somber tone to it, and a deep passion.

Loved it!

I classified intelligence into three and right now I am using the most common one. You got me here. Great work. You made me smile.

I know that of which you write here, Mary. Sometimes writing about it "kick starts" the imagination again. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
