On Being

I’m so close, I may look distant.

So completely mixed with you, I may look separate.

So out in the open, I appear hidden.

So silent, because I am constantly talking with you.

~ Rumi

  1. Wise words indeed…this dichotomy can seem confusing and impossible but when shared with love and care completes to make a whole. Look forward to your poem, Khaya! Warmest wishes. Xx

  2. Hello Khaya! This poem highlights a wonderful dichotomy.

    Also, how have you been? It’s been a while since I stopped in here.

  3. Hello Josh! Thank you for stopping by. I’m doing well thanks, I’m on a blogging break at present but will be back soon. 🙂

Do leave a trace!
