Best Poem of Joan Woodbridge

Vacated Space

The deciduous year attenuates
draws thin
my insubstantial resolve.

What beyond a certain grief can I make of this?

Is not failure in the striving itself?

What marks the way
between efforting and too easy acceptance?
beyond the failed dialogue between recrimination and defense?

The year contracts

Ah! Vacated Space again
at once
a stark statement of emptiness
and the quantum paradox of concurrent fullness

What remains?
non-striving stillness
'not so much ...

Read the full of Vacated Space

Stone's Slow Words

adamantine density
inner halls so steeply narrow

how much substance must I shed
to travel your bright circuits?

how much lightness and listening must I cultivate
to finally hear your slow words?
