I Am An Echo - Poem by Kelly Kurt

I am an echo
Overtaken by vibrations long ago created
Words and deeds resonated from the past
My present memory
A confluence in harmonic singularity
I am an echo
All that I am is all that I’ve been
My future self is an expectation of all echoes
Past, present and to be
I reverberate even now, sending forth echoes
To catch up and overtake myself
In every future
An echo, once started, propagates unidirectionally
Tomorrow exists today, for an echo
Ten years from now exists today, for an echo
I am an echo
Helping to create my future self
With every present moment
Themselves influenced by every past’s echo

    An echo, once started, propagates unidirectionally
    .................................MY echoes(? ***) (usually) go Backward.

    I AM AN ECHO....resonates within me. I hear you. This seems a fitting thought for someone living in an 'echoey' church. I like the way you formed this poem. The repetition of ideas and words are in themselves an echo as you develop your idea, your theme, that we are timeless echoes of past, present, and future....Thanks for sharing. You have so many poems, I'll never catch up to them all, but glad I found this one. Peace. (Report) Reply

    Thanks, Pam. I actually wrote this one long before I lived in this church
