before we knew

Image

the places we gather

inside

how we hide

in between

the pieces of yesterday

and the rise of tomorrow

within

us, and through all time

we didn’t know but walked

empty

trying to hold water

up

with our hearts, and how

it rained down

rained down

on

us

before

we

knew

 

Us

  1. I was waiting impatiently for your next post. Huge reward, wonderful poem, as usual. Mystical, spiritual… words are a bit clumsy after such graceful lines. Thank you for sharing (I do love your poetry on Twitter too!) – Thank you, merci, merci infiniment.
    PS
    The final lines are stunning, and resonate deeply with me.
    it rained down
    rained down
    on
    us
    before
    we
    knew
    Us

  2. Spectacular photo made even more so by the wonderful words. Beautiful, I could stare at this all day and not get tired 🙂
