! ! A Thanks For Visiting - Poem by Michael Shepherd

When stillness
walked into the room
there was no need
to greet you

and when you left
and stillness stayed
there was no need
to say goodbye.

    This one has a definite Rumi flavour to it. It leaves just the right taste on the tongue. Like baby bear's porridge. Another one for my studio wall, methinks. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Sometimes, as we all know, we pay no attention to things like form, meter, rhythm, and so what we end up producing is nothing more than an overflow of excess data that we pour on to a page, and there is, of course, nothing wrong with that.

    For purposes of technique, however, I find this to be just a tad clunky in a few places. I like its theme, but of course, that's not the exclusive purpose of poetry, is it?

    I would arrange it just ever so slightly...

    When stillness
    walked into the room
    there was no need
    to greet you

    when you left the room
    and stillness stayed,
    there was no need
    to say goodbye.

    IMO, this flows more effortlessly.

    Otherwise, the sentiment is nice, the theme, more universal than not, and overall, a return to the Shepherd I met all those years ago. 'Toodles.'

    **thanks for informing me of the ghastly typo...; -) (Report) Reply
