here i am
inhaling the delicate silence and
teetering on the edge of darkness
juggling the insistent words
of my own secret dialogue
feverish with the sound
of my own tremulous voice
in the fragile echo of hope
it’s a precarious balance
this life that we live….
about a year ago i started collecting words – any time i ran across words that spoke directly to me, words that carried more than a mediocre dose of meaning i would write them down.
eventually i started combining the words into simple phrases – just for fun. i made a whole slew of 2-5 word sequences that fit together in a provocative way. i typed the whole list up a while back and ended up with several pages of seemingly nonsensical jargon.
it’s fun to play with these little phrases and combine them in new and interesting ways. somehow this little poem came out of my play and, for me, it holds more meaning that i ever would have guessed. you should try it sometime!
i so appreciate all of your thoughtful and insightful comments on my last post. lately some of my posts have been stretching the edge of my comfort zone... remember, my word-of-the-year is "venture!"
thanks for being there!!!!
