When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

On trueness and reality


Claudia:    How real do you get in your poetry?  

I craft poems as a reflection of my instantaneous reality  

My poetry evolves with feelings evoked by old memories 
                                         mixed with recent experience
                                         sparkled with salty tears
                                                       or  fugitive     laughs

Anell:      How true is it?

Some poems are so true      they hurt
Some are transparent with a secret
                 accurate through an image
                 obvious just to some

You:      Can a metaphor be true?

Like the sweetness of salted chocolate!

Amelia:    Can a dream become a poem? Are dreams always true?

… just always real

  1. oh metaphors can say more about reality than the facts at times…
    like salted chocolate, for sure…smiles.

  2. Well-said. I identify with much of what’s written here.

  3. there is a truth in metaphor that our heart understands
