  • These Matters

    kindness reminds us
    for miles we've traveled
    though lifetimes expire
    and we can still smile.
    sunshine that blinds us
    later burnt as an image
    makes shadows of toes
    and silence of words
    which we start to unravel.
    if playing is feeling, and
    stillness invites it, then
    where can I learn again
    the friend I used to be?
    there's always the one
    expectant to arrive, and
    from the back of my eyes
    and the tip of my tongue
    the path is then taken
    like a long fork of lightning
    with no further ado--
    deliberate and blatant.

    I suppose most poetry is self-aware to a large extent. But yours...it digs deep. Find myself reflecting on this one. A good thing. Thanks.

      self-aware poetry is a beautiful thought... I have thought about how we use the word 'self-conscious' in such a negative context as we do; but how much difference between awareness and consciousness? I suppose that answer depends! Take care, I am glad there was something to it you could glean 'matters' Peace!
