in the middle of

in the middle of
the night,
words stir
in stillness,
waiting for
the first sign
of light

    Hello Y. You’re poems are simply beautiful. They remind me of poetry from ancient asia and those of buddhist poets. Short, true, and make a person think for a lifetime. I’d love it if you could check out my blog, and let me know what you think. I love hearing what others have to say about poetry.
