at a blank page
i cast a lingering stare
shall i fill it?
or perhaps leave it bare
many words wonder
the paths of my mind, and
a simple verse
or mysterious poem i find
in the within
that other realm
the stanzas begin
my pen at the helm
the verses mount
rhyme upon rhyme
in my dreams
it pages i count
chasing the many poets dead
the ghosts of all the souls i've read
so upon this page
these words i write
perhaps in another age
they'll greet your sight.
