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.
