My Little Blank Page

Does my blank page care

that it is still blank

Will it have trouble

sleeping tonight

Will it curl up

with its mother

left alone ~ unneeded?

Will it twist around

and watch the other pages

fill with scribbles and art

and wonder how it feels

to be so deeply involved?

Or

will it stand tall

Squarish

Alone

White

In solitude

Silence

An unmarked beauty

And know

Without a doubt

It is precious

Alone.
