I searched for, of course, “Blank Page.”
White, it glared and stared—
this blank page waiting for my words;
Pulling at my eyes of blue
Daring me, controlling me,
But I, with a blink of my eye
and tilt of my head
Saw the faintest blue dot:
a spot where none had been,
lift up and out in gentle wings
Of soft blue,
hovering, floating, and drawing
out the summer blossoms
of Grandmother’s garden:
a favorite of butterflies,
and now my muse
for words I choose.

And that’s it: a post of imagination; a story or poem to share; a chance to write with no boundaries, except a picture prompt of inspiration.
Share one of yours in the comments here!
Today I was to check out my blog roll, choose one of my blogging colleagues and read, comment, and discuss.
One writing teacher colleague I admire is Deanna Mascle; her blog share’s many ideas and strategies, and like me, she doesn’t like the red pen of shame —- she encourages the positive of what the writer can do more of in their writing.
Thank you, Deanna, for your continuous inspiration.
