Holes


In such places
as life and living
there are the
contemplated depths-
voids that cry for fill…
In the connected seas
there must be such
a hole,
for they never run over…
and-
in the segregated me's
a cavernous pit exists
which I appreciate
may not ever
be occupied…..
but I have to try.

Robert

Yes, this is excellent! It is stated simply, but is actually quite profound. Now I keep asking myself why I have not run into your talent and others in this Forum in others that I post in.

Thanks you guys....and some new guys at that!

I just cannot do long poems....I try and run out of steam.

I guess sometimes it is best to let things be as they are.

Very expressive! I like your work, it's thoughtful and full of imagery. I don't think the length of a poem has anything to do with whether or not it's good. Remember size doesn't matter..heart does..

I enjoyed this piece, as I have all your work that I have read. Especially like your creative phrasings...you've a way of expression that's very unique. ("contemplated depths"..."segregated me's"). And always we must try, I must agree.
