Ideas This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My mind is blank.
Whiter than snow,
Emptier than the Grand Canyon,
Plainer than water,
Simpler than breathing,
More tasteless than air,
Bored and tired and worn out.
But wait!
What's that I see?
A snowman, a snow angel,
A magnificent sunrise,
A churning waterfall,
A light summer breeze!
A question, a beginning,
A rainbow splashing onto my imagination,
An idea.
