I am empty.
Wine nourishes my soul.

  1. Ah yes, wine and introspection – it’ll get you every time. It’s easy to let those thoughts wander, trip and fall. Nice description of the experience.

  2. For some, emptiness is a desired state…

    This line is not at all sad, but marks the place where creativity begins.

    “Playing telephone with poetry”, indeed.

  3. yemanja-yes, there was lots going on. It’s the time of year. Ned- there’s a hidden message in the life of grapes that is intertwined irrevocably with me.

  4. Liz- Often the abyss is the most inspiring part of the view, as long as fear doesn’t nose its way in front. But trusting someone will hear keeps the fear away. Thank you for pointing that out.

  5. The abyss is a glorious view when I’m standing next to him
    When his friendship is in my heart I’m whole and unafraid
    I won’t be taken by my disturbing thoughts my moody phases.
    I won’t be that other one who hides and scurries from the light
    When his friendship is in my heart I’m whole and heights don’t scare me.

    But if he gets any more comments today I’m going to go into a deep depression for I am without any. Just kidding. I’ll get you your poems now. (smiles lhg)

  6. How nice to see the shadows clear when a good friend is near. It makes all the difference in the world. There really is no substitute, no matter what anyone says, even the blue voice of doubt.

  7. Hello Garnet,

    thank you so much for commenting on my poetry and for adding my site to your favorites. I haven’t had a chance to properly explore your site, but I will soon. I’m not feeling well today, my stomach is killing me…

    I like this poem, and I really enjoy your style and imagery.

    On a more technical note, I’ve been trying to edit one of my poems’ layout using “Non breaking spaces”, but I just won’t manage to make it look the way it did on Words…heh, too bad. I guess I should take one more crash course in HTML.

    Take care!

  8. Hello Anna- Thank you for stopping by. I’m sorry you are feeling badly. The line breaks you mention are from a wysiwyg editor I have installed as a plugin. I only use if for poems like this. Basically it adds a huge number of “&nbsp” the code to mean space.


  9. You’re welcome Garnet.

    As you can see, I’m still here reading your site 😉

    May I ask you where I can find that HTML editor? Oh, and another thing..should I send you e-mail through the link on your page, it’s not going to show on this site, is it? Ahah!
