It’s been a good day for photos and traditional haiku poems (5 syllables, then 7, then 5 again) …
Here’s a poem I wrote several years ago …
ONE DAY OF NOT SHUTTING UP
a woman said she was
not going to shut up.
She said life is not about shutting up,
but about showing how special life is
by sharing the sounds of thoughts
in miracles called words.
She said trees don’t shut up
but always shower her
with sounds of winds passing through,
and she will continue to spread
the sunshine of her words,
the flash and crash of her sentences.
She said life polishes itself
through her spoken words,
and life’s a musician
and her sentences are its songs.
She says her words
wash each moment,
and she hopes
we will swim with her
in the ocean of her words,
she is not shutting up
