10/23/05

Those of you who visited my blog before I left probably remember that I posted numerous “poems.” I hope to eventually republish some selected ones. One of the poems was entitled “Light Catcher.” Well… I woke up this morning to “ I separated grains of sand with my tongue” a line that stayed in my head throughout the day. I have no idea where it came from but I needed to finish the thought; “Light Catcher:#2 is the result.

Light Catcher: #2

As I separated the grains of sand with my tongue
I categorized each shape according to the hole it fit into;
Saliva, bonding each grain like mortar,
Erecting the house that shaped my life.

While lying…
Face down
On the beach.

What an incredibly gritty and tactile image, grains of sand on the tongue, and separating them, and building the house that shaped your life... I like the way the images in their surreality pile on each other and yet slip away too.

Thanks Brennda. I haven't written anything in quite some time. A few things in Spain but I've been pretty much focused on other things. So thanks for the comment. I appreciate it.

Hey, thanks Richard! I can't believe I'm hearing that word "surreal" again! What was in that water in Spain?
