    a poem about nothing...

    without a thought to build upon
    i write these words
    no preconceived notions
    words in motion


    stumbling through with nothing prepared
    without a care...
    i forge ahead


    through this verse and into another
    just like any other
    no subject at hand
    alone they stand
    the words spill upon the page


    rhythm and rhyme
    set in time
    through a structured verse
    the flow of words


    lacking the usual metaphors
    these words of course
    just ramble on...


    a poem about nothing it seems
    so easily...
    just flows from me


    line after line
    these words combine
    in thoughtless rhyme
    while keeping time
    until i decide
    to make it end....

    wow it just flows!!!!!! great creative and just flowing like a river

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
