Reflections on Art and Life


Tangled breaths of water nymphs
Waves’ incessant moans
Intertwined in endless
Ebbs and flows
Nothing satisfies let me

Stay let me go
Neither food nor
Sleep comfort wordless angsts

As if words could
Soothe nameless yearnings
Yes but no

And what if
The heart longs for
That which exists not
Aches to give
That which it has not

Neither matter nor
Space ever widening
Can separate or join

Soul’s vital flaw
Nothing satisfies

    Can there ever be satisfaction when there is longing? Nicely done. Just stopped by to see how you are doing. Did you graduate this year? Are you famous yet?

      Hi Don, yes, I’m famous but most people don’t know about it. I graduated in May. I will continue my graduate studies at NYU this fall. I hope you are well. Are you famous yet?

What do you think?
