“ The Book ”

         – of blank pages –

A book in search

Of giving birth,

To pages blank,

Free of dearth

Hopes but record,

View so composed

Of words in accord,

To author predisposed

Might ease the way,

That dares initiate

A scribe’s want say,

Without hesitate

When he finds a play,

Empty of intimidate

Upon a virgin page,

The while a book awaits

Words chosen to breathe life,

To the uninhabited posed state

Held be the book, of blank pages!

“ In My Mind ” ~ I border on sublime ~

In my mind

I look so grand,

I almost am

You understand,

Tho chance I err

Thus to be safe

Won’t say aloud,

And every mirror

Keep under shroud…

 

I’m in great shape

My mind believes,

With easy grace

I move with speed,

As I wouldst rate               

Hence so at ease…

 

Thus far  I see

I border on sublime,

Leastwise in my mind!
