As I stare at these pages
Blank without words
With out expressions of any kind
Without anything
At anytime
As I blankly look at these
Abandon pages wondering
No pondering
What to say
Or how am I going to say it.

Blankless without words
Not expressed by words
But emotions by words
Elected and approved by
The poet as he put it on paper
Or try to put together
But my mind just won’t let me.

I missed those words
Climbing out of my head
Like toy soldiers out to play---
Playing war
At some point of time
But slowly but surely
One by one
They do come
And they go
Until I am satisfied.
But until then----
But until I will think
Until my thinking is clear
My mind refreshed with words----
Beautiful words put on paper
And I won’t be blankless
Until the point
My mind just becomes
Like a desert
Dry, hot and endless traveling
Further and further away.
Without words
Until the pages comes alive
And flows freely
Said I.
August 2005.
