Paper Weight Premiere Contest Winner

The page bears so eagerly the weight of everything inside of me my pen prostrate leaves a dent I muse this paper could use some weightlessness I make an airplane instead

The Muse herself speaks right through the lines you penned. Remarkable!!!! Should be a contest for this...Something like, 'reflecting in the mirror.' Just love it. :) gw

I suppose after a ten year block I do get a little nervous. ;) xomo
Date: 4/29/2019 11:43:00 AM
The agony of the poet: Will the page be filled or will it remain blank? That's the question! If we cannot give an answer it is a good idea to make..." an airplane instead" Well done!
