Poems Without Words


I want to write poems without words
Because words are only puffs of wind
Just vibrating waves carried thru air
Only small noises joined together
To somehow form bigger meanings

I want to write poems without thoughts
Ones with only pure emotion
Poems that make you stomach tighten
The center of your chest ache
And tears flow freely from your eyes

I want to write poems from the soul
Poems written in the blood of the heart
With a pen made of fools gold
That reach out and softly grab you
And then take over control

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
