Veteran Poet - 1,207 Points (January 4,1931 / a citizen of the world)


I have nothing more to say.
It would be repetitious and
boring if I did.

So I'm taking my old mums advice.
'If you haven't anything constructive
to say, don't say anything.'

May be a few drops of spring water
will eventually infiltrate the barren well.
Until then - stumm...

    yet beautiful, you say everything when you do not intend to tell anything since you did not say, i adore and admire the saying- as art lies in concealing art.thanks (Report) Reply
