A Blank Screen Poem by Aldo Kraas

A Blank Screen

Rating: 3.4

I turned on my computer today
My mind is blank
I look into a blank screen
Can’t think of what to write
Time is passing by
And I haven’t written anything yet
I can’t blame it on myself
My mind is somewhere else
- Still at home

Our minds have to go elsewhere in order to turn that blank canvas into a piece of art...Justine

This is so true, I can write and write, then my mind goes blank for a long time. Time to visit the world for more inspiration.

Ah yes, those times when you slip into screen saver mode, I remember them well (although, actually, I don't)

I have moments like that all the time! Though I'm not sure my mind is always at home, I do not know where it is.
