Letting Loose


The blank page
stares me down,
taunts me to mar
its pristine emptiness
with mere words.
I clench the pen
between my fingers
trying to pull words
from my blank mind.
Do I dare give wings
to my thoughts
and let them loose?

PO-EMotions graphicAfter watching and reading the April poetry challenge by Mary Lee Hahn at A Year of Readingfor the past several years, I decided to write a poem a day this month. Mary Lee is hosting PO-EMotion, with a different emotion for each day of the month. Today’s focus is COURAGE. For even more poetry fun throughout April, check out the roundup of poetry celebrations and projects at Jama’s Alphabet Soup

      Thanks! I had a hard time coming up with what to write about yesterday, so I turned to that block for inspiration.
