Rose Mary Boehm


A White Sheet of Paper

I contemplate
the white rectangle
of paper on which
nothing is written.
It is in abeyance.

There shall be no
budding of words,
no binding
of seeds to what seems
their future.
Free to shift essence,
gather resonances.

Wraiths born
remain untold.

A white sheet of paper.
A gateway.
