I Wish I Had A Poem


I WISH I HAD A POEM

I wish I had a poem-
It has been a long day
And I have struggled with my own emptiness
And come out with more emptiness-

Silence is beautiful,
When one wants silence-
But the silence in oneself
Is not always beautiful-
Sometimes it is simply emptiness,
Nothing to say and nothing to do and nothing to be-

I sort of have a poem now
Don't I?

Out of my great silences
I make little songs,
And those songs sing at the end of the day
A few words
Rescuing Time from Meaninglessness

    excellent...for out of emptiness and silence comes songs that can define
    a reason to sing and rejoice and carve up the silent emptiness and replace it. (Report) Reply
