mist fills the shadow of the earth

this
deep shading
heavy

with singing crickets
and scents of summer

drying coriander
crushed under feet
though they walk gently

and I
whisper sing
of simple things

the ordinary
stretched across
the longing universe

resonating
and echoing it

and somehow
this voice
& the crickets calling blend
in a joined song

of metaphysics
and phenomenology

at once opposing, expanding
and complementing

one wholeness

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Susan I have to say that your poems make me want to write my own, but I don’t think I can do justice to the way you write them. Great stuff.

  2. legionwriter says:

    “whisper sing of simple things”. I love when a poet can group words that make music together and remain able to say what they want to say.
