The cursor blinks.
The blank, white page stares back at me.
Absolutely nothing.

My heart and mind
Empty,
Waiting

To be filled to overflowing
With truth,
With wisdom.

These are the days of want,
But I remember the days of abundance
When I had something to share.

Something worth writing about,
Singing about,
Shouting about.

Abundance that only God can provide,
Coming in waves of inspiration
To fill up the blank, white page.

I could tell stories,
How I could tell stories,
An abundance of stories.

Stories of hope,
Stories of love
Stories of grace.

Now, the cursor blinks
The blank, white page stares back at me
Nothing…

The Author of the work,
Never absent,
Speaks gently.

Where there were no words,
Where there was no inspiration,
Now, there is a gentle calm.

Slowly, carefully,
Letter by letter
The words begin to form
Until…

Out of the abundance of God’s heart
My writing speaks.

Absolutely brilliant! All of us could relate to that

Well written poem of frustration and then finally finding fulfillment from God. A little fun and cheesy considering we are all writers who share the same frustration. All the better that only a few are brave enough to enter such an article into the challenge. I think you did a good job.

Miss Andre.

good job here in free verse poetry--I, too, can relate to these thoughts.

I love your punch line: "Out of the abundance of God’s heart
My writing speaks."

Blessings on your writing.
