The Empty Wall

Updated on August 14, 2014

My mind is blank, like an empty wall.

No stories, no inspiration, no thoughts no dialogue.

And then somewhere in an obscure corner

the tiniest hint of a plot breaks out.

The scene, the words, the characters grow

like the tendrils of a vine that seeps through the cracks and reaches out

to take hold of the empty space.

Suddenly the wall is no longer empty

as leaves unfurl and the vine spreads.

New characters are born with each flower

that bursts upon the scene.

The fruit grows, the story matures,

filling the empty spaces and delighting those who partake.

Now where once was an empty wall a vineyard stands,

serving generations to come.

Where once was an empty mind,

now a whole world is experienced.

      Yes! You have explained it so well - and the joy of indulging in the doing of it.

      Beautiful poem. You have been really busy today, two chapters and a poem is impressive.
