Here and There
If I am here and you are there
(across the room or around the world)
where do our minds meet?
And if you are now and I am then, when?
I repeat: have you seen
my teddy bear?
(I thought I’d throw that in.)
And if the meeting is imagined,
all the better.
Or if it’s one cell harmonizing
with another in a larger brain we share,
that would hardly be unfair,
granted the illusion that we can,
and must, begin again.
Recently Linked: My thanks to Chrees for reading and commenting on my novel, A Listening Thing. I’ve been enjoying his interesting, informative blog, A Common Reader, for a long time now. What a pleasant surprise to find my book had earned a post of its own!
“Here and There” added to Poems, Slightly Used.
A snippet from the aforementioned review and a link to A Common Reader added to the novel’s title page.
In the Forum: Michael Kriesel’s “American Haiku.”
