I’m a poet with a particular point of view. In these next blog posts I’ll post poems on different subjects from my point of view. Each poem is an expression, through me, of inspiration or Spirit or emotion. What you see in this light is what you bring to the poem.
What is it about talking? How you can say things but they don’t seem to reach others, and vice-versa. Here’s a poem I wrote about communication last September. I hope you enjoy it!
Talk, Talk, Talk
So many things we can’t say
to each other,
are we hiding the worst parts of ourselves
or the best?
Wearing my heart on my sleeve,
I’m no poker face.
Everyone knows what I’m thinking,
even before I do.
a charming, un-scalable wall,
a good-natured mountain,
whose stone face
hides so much
We communicate best in gestures,
The words fail us,
filling up the space
ready to burst.
Where’s the damn pin?
