one dimension

Carpe Diem #1017 true secret


of late the words are not round and full of verve
they lie on the sheet begging for breath
lacking depth or lungs or heart

is this a state of mind or just a temporary valley
how to regain the passion in the print
maybe a matter of just once again observing the world

for just typing about a scene does not bring a soul
the emotion of the moment needs be be painted
into the fabric of the page, letters with bleeding edges

edges no longer sharp and distinct but muddled
with the glowing layers of beings
moving through existence

laughing, loving, hating, crying, drinking and eating
pulsating with passion and vitality
even as we mourn the dying

there shall again be two and three dimensions
words that pull the reader into the moment
into that life ... on the page ...  once again ...

crawls away under a potsherd
the cool shadow
