Birth of a poem







A poem is not an artefact
but a message from the soul.
It is the in-breath and out-breath
of the universe.
It is the sea rolling in,
the elements singing,
the heart breaking,
the golden hush
before the sun sets,
before the tears fall.

It is the moment
without sound,
where is no tumult,
where all is whole;
the breathless moment
before spirit speaks
or the heart beats
or the music floods in.
