Nothing and Everything #poetry


Life ~

filled with nothing

bareness , no growth

light recedes into darkness

clouds and the wind reside here

yet always imagining

the taste of “everything”

***

Everything…

breathe it

 like the finest scent

of roses

taste it …

a rich bouquet

the finest wine

Jubilant

sunshine and laughter

love -would- be -there

*

and then …

a glimpse from a vacant room

it was Everything

scenes from my dreams

hopes in my heart

it was you

*

Laughter yet sadness

sunshine and rain

flowers and harvest

our hands

mere millimeters away

*

sadly…

whatever it was receded

as hope often does

 now my nothing

is more vacant

filled with pain

life without any possible

 replication 

of you

“Bucket of Tears” by L. Moon 2010

Published by moondustwriter

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. To this reader the voice in the piece is coming to a realization of sadness. That feeling of leaving something behind, but realizing that perhaps, it left you. Just how I read it…RS
