poem- hollows July 20, 2014

I wait

in the hollow place

for you

You happily celebrate

the concavities

but appreciate

the complexities

of the convexities.

In hollow places

grace erases traces

of solemnity and

embraces totality,


I wait

for you.

    One of my favourites by you =)

  5. I don’t have a favorite “yet” – I’m in awe of everything you write. I’d love to give you a snapshot of my heart, dreams and thoughts and have you put it into words. You are one of the handful of people I am in extreme awe of since joining WP. Talent beyond comprehension.
