Blank Paper 3

by Janet Cameron Hoult 2008

 

If I stare at the blank paper long enough,

I can see colors and patterns

that drag my mind in wild directions.

Which one shall I take?

 

Whatever I decide to focus on

will shift over time

as I play with it...

rolling the words around in my mind,

tasting the mix I have concocted.

 

Coaxing texture and subtle shading

out of the words and phrases -

ensuring that the colors and patterns

of my work are pleasing

to the eye and the ear

and that they leave a delicious flavor

in the mind, the heart and the soul,

so the reader will ask for more.
