Impressions Monet I A cathedral attracts me Day by Day To find the way light Falls. I see gaps of darkness Fade away, But oh How I long For my garden Red poppies Flowing river Waves in ponds Bridges suspended over Reflections Of a garden in water. Lotuses form lilies Whispering to me Mocking my … Continue reading Impressions

Requiem II

From Robert Okaji’s blog O at the Edges.

O at the Edges


Requiem II

To say what becomes: this word
bends in the wind of our

breath. Is this too simple to
say? Our bodies gather yet retain

nothing. Numbers, phrases, the way
the ocean rolls. Once I saw
a whale at dusk. Or rather I saw its

tail part the water and disappear
into darkness, an answer too complex
and sweet for tongues to comprehend.

But waves seldom explain. Imagine
something nearby but beyond reach.

Think of clouds and shrines, consider light.

Light in the tunnel

Thanks to AB for permission to reblog this poem. You can find more of his poetry at Perspectives on life, the universe and everything.  AB is the second guest poet on the Light theme.

AB Writes:
When I was young I created a long list of things to do and places to visit. I also created a set of skills which I thought would greatly benefit me to live a fulfilling life. Finally I also promised myself that whatever happens I don’t want to live a life which is just ordinary. This is the place where I will tell you what extraordinary things are happening around me. ..’

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Circle within circles, illumination store
Lightening beams spiralling out of a floor
Random thoughts, distractions immense
travelling through time, still wishing for more
