Stopped by the side of the road
Caught between a thought and not a thought.
I smile and say just a moment.
No one is listening.
If only it all would pause for just a little while…
And I could forget the rest.
And then a wave of nothing passes through me.
When everything that we count on to keep us distracted from soul hunger disappears and yet somehow we remain, what is left?
A girl standing in the desert by the side of the road
Photographing an enchanting paint splash on a telephone pole,
Somewhere between a thought and not a thought
Lost in the universe, still making art.
Poems I've written over the course of my life and recently.
