2.22.11

February 22, 2011

Breeze is coming in
and the curtains flow,
but the windows are still.

Children are laughing
and their smiles are being lit,
but their parents don’t notice.

Birds are flying,
and they’re uniformly moving,
but no one looks up.

Flowers are pollinated,
and start to bloom,
but no one stops to notice.

My mind is busy
and I’m exploding to share,
but no one has the time.

  1. Two of my favorite phrases to say to my friends (because I believe they rarely hear it elsewhere):

    Look up

    &

    Listen

    GREAT poem. Thank you for sharing (:


  2. I like the structure of this very much: positive, positive, negative. Repeat. Moments of living blocked by a dead end.
