She whispers my name... Only I can hear

I Am

I am
So are you
We are as one - don't hide
Without pretense, or pride

Born, never asked
Why in this time?
Why in this space?

Question not the all
For we come
So very briefly
To this place

wow this is like water... cooling off all the angst burning inside us...
think both Emily Dickinson's and our versions in a way contained this anguish of a "why"...

and you say, we just "are" and life is too short to be wasted upon questioning why we "are"... so true... i really love this concept of 'just be'

how good it is to get rid of an ever-questioning and doubting mind for some time... or ever...
thanks Bobbb for sharing this with us... i'll put the link to this poem so that other friends can read.... no no live this poem...

P.S. the way you invited me to come and read your post was fabulous... i ran light-heartedly to the rhythm you created... and found this gem...

I feel that.

Thanks for stopping in.

I agree with the disturbed one ... "so very briefly" touches a good place in my heart -- makes me feel wise and young at the same time! Which probably means I'm just foolish. Lovely piece Bobbb. Thanks.

Bobbb,
i am speechless... the way all your thoughts -- wise and beautiful thoughts -- are pouring out in the form of poetry...
just some minutes ago i was reading your new poem in Hopper's blog addressing BBC... appreciating your judgment and choice of words... i was so impressed that some words started to shape a sculpture in my mind with the name of 'a traveler called Bobbb'....
then i came back to my blog and faced this masterpiece you wrote there... regarding being a poet...
i just stood in awe...

no one can call you a poet, for you are poetry itself...
with your magic wand you are creating a new universe... oh no... better to say, you are reminding the universe to be a uni-verse...

"Question not the all"

Well, I must, it seems to be my job at the present.

I second HB's notion
and silly
to repeat the words

except thanks
for sharing your
wisdom
of not assuming
wisdom

your words
bring peace
and goodness
and grace

many thanks Bobbb ... :)
