words for silence

It take sunlight just over eight minutes to reach earth. We are living within the memory of light.
truth is,  
I only am a poet 
because you 
give me poems 
and I want you. 

I don't agree that we should write from fear. It seems to me the world has been broken, bombed, and ruined because of fear. I would rather read what someone loves, hopes, or dreams from within their tender self. I would rather read you than what you think about the Other. 

Today has been filled up and softened with rain. But the birds have gone on singing.


  1. Beautiful thoughts. If we but wrote from love and understanding, wouldn't that be wonderful.
