4/9/16 Two poems, one about understanding, another about trying to communicate

At times things can appear differently

when viewed from certain angles

compared to when viewed from others.

Light cannot bend over a horizon,

so it is impossible to see each other

over the curvature of the earth,

but if we each took just one step

forward, toward one another...

whole vistas would be revealed

and new understanding gained.





When I sing my joy or sadness

into the atmosphere,

my voice does not carry,

the breath from my lungs

cannot penetrate the vastness 

of the world's gaseous blanket.

My emotion, however strongly sent,

gets rebounded back to me,

striking like a viper and knocking me down

and my gaze and voice turn inward.
