Stares at him a blank page
Stares at him a blind rage
Stares at him a maddening pause
Stares at him an indeterminable cause

It seems so unfair
Before him is only laid bare
A taunting silence
Tearing into his patience
Dragging him down to bottom
Raising him up the cliff
Tossing him in the storm
Showing him no relief!

And it’s precisely then
Over the shattering pain
Emerges a newly born light...

He feels a palpable might.

He rejoices in its voice.

Past the night’s turbulence
Would be revealed at the dawn
The hidden shapes in the silence
The picture fully drawn!

A picture sans all flaws
For you drawn on the canvas
Making redundant a cause
For effects that far surpass!

    From vagueness when a poem is born, from a blank canvas, when a masterpiece finally emerges, it is a moment of triumph for the artist! You have succeeded in bringing out the void and the resultant frustration felt by a creative artist at the beginning of his attempt and the final exultation over the glimpse of an astonishingly finished product! !

    Great poem! A sure 10 (Report) Reply
