A Blank Page

A blank page

A simple empty sheet

No marks yet emerging

No words or concepts

No jokes or philosophies

But think of the possibilities

All the great works began like this

A blank page gave birth to Torah

A blank page gave birth to Gospel

A blank page gave birth to Walden

A plank page gave birth to countless love letters

A blank page gave birth to my fifth grade report card

A blank page gave birth to the script of The Color Purple

A blank page gave birth to the Earth Charter

A blank page gave birth to my spouse’s birth certificate

A blank page gave birth to Canon in D

A blank page no longer seems so simple

It holds infinite possibility

When you see a blank page

When you sit behind a blank page

Be aware of the power of a few swishes, hashes, marks, and dashes

Be opened to the inspiration of the divine

Be ready for the magic that might leave you spellbound

A blank page is a universe in waiting
