    John writes a great collection of poems on Brenda's word prompt "Nothing."Each poem explores a different facet - self-motivation, inspiration, and even writing about nothing—excellent Work, John, as always.

    These are excellent poems, John. You certainly more than met Brenda's prompt. I enjoyed the message in that first poem especially.

    Thanks for posting John's poems, Ravi.

    Your poem "A Poem About Nothing
    Nothing" says it all in a few lines

    Nothing is beyond me, if I strive I’ll succeed,

    When you have everything, there’s so much to lose,

    But if you have nothing, life is an upward cruise

    I’d rather have nothing, and be happy with that

    Your poem, "Writing About Nothing"  shows us how if we only think about nothing , no one will want to go along.

    No one will read our work.

    Your acrostic poem, "NOTHING ~ An Acrostic"  givees us encouragement to help others along the way.
    Telling us not to give up on our dreams and to believe in God's grace.

    "The Nothing Song" is quite simple but carries an impactful message.

    Great job.

    I already posted a link in the world prompt.

    So glad your muse decided to wake up.

    P.S. ~ i loved the message in the first one too.

    These were great poems on "Nothing" (Brenda's prompt week 55), which I simply loved and admired. The quote by Robert Frost made me smile big. It's about noon here and nothing much to do at the moment other than continue with my reading. But I loved your article a lot which filled up my minutes of the day with joy and delight. Thank you, John, for sharing.

    Thank you, Ravi, for sharing John's post.

    Such a delight to read your poem, John. How you can think up so many things to include in a poem on nothing is admirable.

      Hi Mary, it took me awhile to think of everything to write about nothing. Thank you.
