The Unspoken...





had life been concise
i'd be counting one to ten
with the universe

had life been precise
things will be in equations
and in absolutes

had life been more fair
i would have existed not
in unspoken word

i heard the sound of
the last chime as it echoes
in my whole being

there was silence, then
time ceases to exist, i
turned a year older

Haunting and beautiful. Well done.

PS: you probably don't remember (or you do remember and now you hate me), but I still have your hat done and need to send it to you (think pink crochet). I am sorry that life intruded and I forgot, but I will get to it soon.

Lovely poem. May each new year and day brings greater joy and many spiritual blessings in Christ! May God's love continue to strengthen you through all the changing scenes in life. You are in my thoughts and prayers always. Have a blessed weekends! Hugs.

Time ceased to exist and at the same time you still manage to age? This is a paradox that boggles the mind.

I fear a life that's all absolutes and equations.
