We are castles in the sand


until the tides of time

whistle through our ramparts

erasing me & mine

the dance of sea & shore

towards an elusive oneness

within the empty spaces

between silence & stillness”


I have always enjoyed writing, but stopped a long time ago. I found words to be more deceptive than enlightening. They constructed ideas & images that were often alien to me.  I preferred silence as a means of understanding myself. It was subtle, unencumbered and closer to who I was than words.

But as I began to write again, I noticed it also allows us to distill our thoughts, feelings & memories until a quiet vibrancy remains. One that connects with our own heart and allows it to merge with the spontaneous flow of life.

  1. Astute! Writing does provide anchoring to thoughts and dreams or ideas. Sometimes, I introspect more through my writing than when I am alone. Can not agree more with you
