Blank Paper

Every word put
On a sheet ex-
Presses the state
Of wandering mind.

Thoughts flow
Into paragraphs
Or lines in poems
To delight readers.

A day when pen
Doesn't make its move
Life seems to turn
Into a huge void.

Blank paper invites
One to write on it
Void in mind's thought
Asks to fill it with ideas.

Quite right. A blank paper often is an invitation to a writer to fill it with ideas. When ideas flow into it, we as poets, derive immense satisfaction!
