Best Poem of Ayn Timmerman

A Quiet Mind

Lift up the cover and look
at the things scattering,
hidden, secret things;
the way insects
search for escape
when rocks are upturned.

This is not a quiet mind.

Once,
I thought that I may have seen
the door that a few things
do manage to slip away,
right on through.

But there is still time,
I have to believe,
to share vital information
that could change
worlds,
lives,
and history.

That is precisely why
I refuse to carry a watch.

Blighted

Push your hand in,
to feel the soft spot
white at the edges,
mold in the damp
fending off tears,

and something else.

Push too hard
and break the barriers,
feel the rank internal mush
and clench it in your palm-

raw emotion.
