WHAT A SIMPLE SHEET OF PAPER CAN HOLD

Written by: Madelin Barton

I write not sonnets or 
fancy cues
I'm not really sure I even
know what's haiku but 
when I write I write about 
what to me is true...
 
On a simple sheet paper
my feeling sometimes
show.  
Apprehensive to let others
be  judge how much
or how little I know.

It keeps me busy serves
greatly to unwind  like a
daily  safety deposit box of
an unquiet mind.

Impressed as to all a simple
sheet of paper can hold
burdens sorrows memories
new and old but always 
a story that wants to be told.

I take delight in reading what
others write because I find 
we share the same burdens
and passion for life.
we've found a common ground 
to reveal what withers without 
paper, thoughts that transcend 
space and time.....
