When You Start To Talk About Nothing - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the moment you start to talk about nothing
mind you, this nothing becomes something
and this something becomes something more
like a raindropp falling becoming a worm
the worm becoming a fish
the fish becoming a bird
the bird becoming a man

smaller ones taking bigger shapes
until it becomes a part of you
until it becomes you
until it becomes something bigger than you

all it takes is just a simple beginning
and you making meaning shaping bigger things
more than yourself
more than you can ever think of at the end
