*Impossible*

I need
a blank page
With no lines or letters
Without stains of old ink
or ugly spots
of rust

I want
to forget
And just be
With no memory of harsh words
the heavy weights
of blame

I need
fresh drops
upon my leaves
Light winds in my hair
Cheerful dreams
on my palms

I need
a blank mind

  2. In order to have that blank mind we often have to visit those ink spots that leave the stains upon the page.. Its only after we have erased them one by one do we see also the blank pages of a new book yet to be written..
    Love this poem Eclipse, your words always have evoked my own responses as I view your words from my own perspective
    Bless you my friend for visiting

  8. “i need a blank page’ to ‘I need a blank mind’. A perfectly shaped poem Eclipse. I’m sure we can all relate to this feeling. Wonderfully expressed. Thank you for posting a poem for us again. It is an honour to have you.
