Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Invitation
 
As I turned the pages of my journal
I found an empty page
And wondered why?
Did anything noteworthy happen
Or was it simply a mistake
Causing the empty page
To be caught between the precious
And the one to follow
With no thought about it
Until I picked up the journal
And began to read.

I discovered the empty page
And saw an invitation
To fill in the space
And my thoughts began to scramble
Of what to insert?
More words or maybe some art
And then wondered what the empty page
Might demand...
A photograph or just a big question mark?

The invitation was too great
So I wrote 'What would you do?
