A New Beginning (for a writer)

A new beginning

sounds like a fine thing,

after an old ending;

bringing with it

the chance to start

all over again.


An opportunity to create once more;

with sharpened pencils,

a new ballpoint pen.

and a blank piece of paper

upon which to write or draw.


I am a writer,

and what to say is always an issue;

keeping it on point, relevant,

never straying too far from the topic;

do I create a fairy story,

murder mysteries, historical fiction,

or something vaguely biopic?


Who knows?

The only thing that ‘is’ certain

is that the paper awaits,

and ‘I’ have been called.
