Poet’s Corner


I met a stone wall today

I met a stone wall today

Our conversation was heavy

The weight of the words and thoughts seemed unbearable

Its stone boundary lines set limits to my limitless spirit

The stones being visual manifestations of my allegorical

time space continuum

My fourth dimension

Its solid and earthy forms creating some foundation of


What is inside a stone — but a stone

What is inside of me — Is me

Neither solid, liquid, gas, nor organic

But the ephemeral taproot

Looking for its spirit well

Searching for its life source

Lifting that stone weight of my existence.
