Possibilities Rise

(So I’ve really been slacking recently, so I’m going to get back into the weekly prompts. This poem comes from the Writer’s Digest poetry prompt 361 to write an uplifting poem. I hope my rusty attempt isn’t too painful!)

An empty page
A blank canvas
Stares back, full of potential.

Bit by bit
Stained by lines…
Forming into words,
Marring the clean perfection
But making it more.

Giving it meaning.

The lines blur,
Run together
Mingling, twirling
Painting a picture
Only imagination can see.

Giving life,
Giving flight
To that which was nothing.
