As many worlds


As many worlds
as beings to perceive

as many beings
to conceive

of grief
on the departure

of worlds
as real

as any
here

Amen to that. You say so much with so few beautifully conceived and crafted words. (I am thinking how apt this is to me personally in terms of the pow wow).

A beautiful connection... Thank you.

Fine one, William--

I hear the sounds
of this, which brings

your world here.

I'm also reminded of a poem I wrote many years ago—may I?

conceives the word
perceives

the world within
a mind

less deception

You most certainly may,
and again I say of a Zambaras poem,
I cannot conceive of less
than perfection.

Thanks, Wild Bill and thank goodness some people always remain wild.
