Blank Verses by CReese

Blank Verses by CReese * Awash with untold possibilities, Untouched by thought or pen, by word or rhyme– The page before me lies crisp and pristine Awaiting my delicate touch to live.

I love how positive a perspective you took on the blank page–pregnant with possibilities indeed as you so wonderfully list. Thank you for sharing this way of thinking, it’s something i sorely needed reminding of. πŸ™‚

This month many seem to have gone for the blank page option of the prompt. Yours is an original take on the theme – that the blank page actually gives you the opportunity to write in all these different styles, not something to be despaired at. If I may just grumble about something – poetess sounds archaic to me. A poet is what you are.

Beautiful poem. I love that you make this about all the possibilities and listing them creates a spark of hope in a stuck artist’s mind.

Love this line:
And what shall find its birth among these lines?

The piece flows well and I had to look up acolyte and love this word and how you have used it. I often feel that I am a messenger and these are not necessarily my words. To worship my pen.

Great work. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Realy enjoyed reading this. I love the language you use – and the many possibilities that you list. This makes me feel really upbeat and excited about the potential of the blank page.

Very well done.

This is a masterful poem. I do like the way you chose to use the prompt. I also enjoyed all the different uses of this blank slate:) Really well done.

A really nice poem you’ve created here. Your opening four lines really grab me….ah yes, a blank page not to be feared but to be glanced upon with so much potential.

I really like these two well-crafted lines ‘This is the glory of a page that’s blank! This is the reason scribes worship their pens!’ Lovely.
