Bottom of the heap

Before you crumple and toss that half-completed sentence, give it a second chance. One tiny inkling might be the beginning of a bigger happening, a higher being and becoming…

The ancient eavesdropper

Here is a little food for thought for you dreamers and creative spirits in the blog-o-sphere.  Sometimes the best and brightest ideas go unrealized like the millions of stars that quietly expire while we sleep.  If we, as artists, are fortunate enough to discover 10% of these stars in our lifetime, I think we will have been blessed beyond belief.  Original ideas are rare but that may be because they do not see the light of day at the bottom of the trash can.  An open mind illuminates not what’s missing, but what is already existing.  Hope you enjoy the poem below!

Soundless words, steady slip-stream of silent conversation,

levitating used dictionaries, dog-eared pages transcend definition,

post-consumer paper waste, crumpled wads adrift in the asteroid belt of space.

Half-realized ideas, empty context, worn down eraser mistakes, blank shadow, no face.

Once the fabric of time rips open, the fracture can…

  1. 🙂 Happy to read this! You remind me..

    Einstein – “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”

    .. but sometimes it’s hard to comprehend. Have a great day 🙂

    • Thank you, Tara! Einstein had more than his hair going on upstairs – what a wise guy he was! When we admit that we do not know everything, we begin to honor our humanity and humility. To paraphrase Einstein, the moment we stop learning is the day we cease to exist. Hope you have a great day as well!
      Tyler 🙂

      • haha.. much more hair!

        -but isn’t everything fast and slow moving molecules, a matrix of matter and energy where E=mc2. Matching frequencies = the thought/thing becoming real.. creating the frequency back.. ** maybe like the vibration between your talking trees? ** Thank-you for commenting back. Love the human mind, so much to run parallel with our own earth and universe 🙂 Tara.

      • You are most welcome, Tara! I like the way you think. Keep those thoughts flowing my way. You may only start a dialogue with one person, but it channels inspiration and spreads the spirit of the universe every which way 🙂

      • Like little particles of light moving through space and time! Lets hope.. at least in my good moments. haha
        Thanks Tyler, I feel too much sometimes, and this is the restricted me. 🙂
