A week for poetry



Geoff’s choice

In a field
I am the absence
of field.

This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body’s been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.

Mark Strand

    1. Gulara! I wanted to be in touch with you, with Solveig and other friends, but the whole thing ran out of my fingers. One second, I was thinking, it would be nice that each reader had a chance to become a blogger and share a poem with us, and the next moment, I ws writing, receiving answers in whole disorder! The fact that I was still suffering from a migraine did not help!
      Do you have one or more poems you would like to share with us? I am thinking of making this a weekly feature: I have too many for a week. And it would be nice to share, wouldn’t it? I have a Buddhist selection, British, American, Russian, French poems, feminists, others more like nursery rhymes – we have all some poetry living withi us.
      I would be very glad and privileged, if you joined. And it would be a great pleasure! 🙂
