Except for these—

Except for these words,

which are sacrosanct,

all of my other words

are of little or no value.

Take no heed,

when you read them,

as they are but poor and distant relatives

to the words written by the great writers.

The heroes of yesteryear

are mighty indeed;

and, let me not mislead you

when I say that I

am not worthy to lick their metrical feet,

and can no more compete with them

than a nail recite ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’.

Fade. To nothing. Leaving no trace.

Just a page of empty space.

And so it goes.

  1. Empty spaces beg to be filled …
    Empty minds allow visions to unfold, rather than force daily rituals to bind.
