Poem: Hollow Again

space is shapeless
until formed and framed
by solid geometry
swirled neatly stacked
divided assembled
capturing nothing
signifying nothing
with simple emptiness
elegantly residing inside
waiting to be filled

a box is most useful
for the space it embraces
a man is most useful
for the embrace he enfolds
one is for filling
the other for giving
both are most useful
when holding sweet treasures
safely entwined.

  1. I find a lot of Beauty and goodness in your words, especially the second stanza. A man that recognizes the power and gentleness of his hands, is truly special. And a man that expresses it so eloquently in verse has a unique wonderful gift.
