Fill Here

Robert Lee Brewer of WD's Poetic Asides prompted us to write a poem about nothing, more specifically an "empty" poem. here is mine =)


Fill Here

My tank needs fuel
Not gas or oil
But something to get me going.

My head is hollow
My brain is there
It needs inspiring occupants.

My heart's ne'er full
Love comes and goes
And there's always room for more.

Add on! A new blog for all things creative has just sprouted, the purple treehouse and invited me to share a haiku. sticking with the above theme, here goes nothing =)

From Nothing

Start with empty space.
As the pieces interlock
A gift emerges.

"My brain is there. It needs inspiring occupants."

Hehe, well, as you well know, Tara, my brain is soon going to be "standing-room only." And I'm not entirely sure about the "inspiring" part. (Smiles)

Neat poem. I likey.

No way will you convince me that you don't have a million things going on in your head. So creative and willing to share. Loved the poem.

Love the haiku. Very profound and thought-provoking.

Your poem on nothing is great. Love 'the need for occupants'. :)

I like the haiku and the little mystery you created.

Two great writings.
Maybe you need some coffee to get rid of the emptiness. Oh, wait, that's me, I need some coffee.
Seriously, well done.
