This Turning


This Turning

what one says
depends not on
words the wind

begins it does
not end but
lends itself to

an end this
turning may be
an answer the

sound of intent
so concealed a
word displayed is

only a word
not an end
nor the beginning


Another oldie from the eighties. It seems that even my poetry was thinner then.

  1. Ha, ha, ha … love the poem, but really love the line about “thinner” in the 80’s. I was considered skinny in the 80’s, now there’s no such thing as being “too thin”. I don’t have to worry about it anyway … from a well-rounded admirer. lol
