Contain the void
and find it within,
undone in its making,
defined only by restriction:
speed moving with the
freedom of thought,
abstract intentions
enabling reason,
breathing light into life
where there was
only shadow before;
outward glimpses of
inward turnings
voiceless expressions
of things awoken,
casting color where
words are lost.

Today’s featured poem comes from Rob Salem. An abstract piece (as the name suggests), amazingly refined, dealing with the inner voice of the poet and the poetic process, concise in it’s approach and execution. Many layers are hidden within this piece, and upon further reading, the layers peel back to reveal the meaning within.
