Id

Only the blind man believes
In no man’s land
The rest of us
We see
Each cast away stone
As our own
Whether it never was
Or ever should be.

I find poetry as a gentle reminder, a medium to relay and dwell upon all things considerate people find inconsiderate. Poetry as an art is akin to a lamp or a magnifying glass. It trails volumes of meaning behind obscure, vague words. I have been writing for a time now, and intend to do so for the time to come. And hopefully, hopefully, hope that one day, someday, a person stumbling across this veil of words, find it alluring enough to shift aside the curtain and peer, into the eyes of the naked truth which sways with the wind of reason. If you have any thoughts, it would be my pleasure to know them, if you don't then it would be a pleasure to not. Be my guest. This feast of words is for you.

  1. Wow, you almost vanished. Glad you posted. 😁

    Another gospel truth! The poem is very apt for these times, I feel. Loved the use of “should” in the last line.

    On another note, I read most of your poems in the last one week, and I am blown away! Your writing reminds me of the lessons imparted in George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language” and in Virginia Woolf’s “A Letter to a Young Poet”. They’d be proud of you!

    Lastly, I admire the ‘NO-Nonsense’ atmosphere of your blog. 🙃

    It was a wonderful read and a very rich experience. Thank you.

      I thank you from the bottom of my heart, my friend. I find it overwhelming to know that you read all my poems… It means a lot to me. I cannot emphasize how much 😄…
      And for the compliments… Gratitude. To know that you think of me in those terms is truly humbling.

      Godspeed, my friend, and once again thank you!!!!!
