When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

Repairing expectations


Dismiss those clumsy dreams   
A fool’s mate is overrated   

Allow a peace meeting   
Let memories flutter around   

Escape if you need to   
Survey the area, squeak through   

Then vanish the shadow   
that got stuck to your sight   

Rub your eyes with reality   
Face north with a smile   

Send the pigeons ahead   
Treat yourself with a laugh   

Report back

  2. Ooh, I like this: “Rub your eyes with reality”

  3. Sounds like some great advice.

  4. Wonderful! Thanks for the advice, I love sending pigeons ahead…such a victory messengers! Thanks, very uplifting!

  5. Step-by-step instructions filled with imagery and wisdom. This reads well, flows down the page until the poet wants it to stop. Each of your couplets contain a sparkling little gem of wordplay that trips your reader into following where you lead. Good stuff,


  6. Face everything (not only north) with a smile and life will be much better.

  7. Reality can be harsh. But the alternative…

  8. so many captivating images and thoughts..i particularly like the idea of a peace meeting
