Anam Cara

You were better off

I came into this life
to experience certain things
and so I have
I didn’t dodge a bullet
if that’s what you’re thinking

Though

You use your words
instead of your hands
You’re more evolved that way
You have more courage
and you don’t give up
You’re more evolved that way

As far as I’m concerned
there is no facsimile for you
no matter what form you take
We’re in the same embryonic sack
just the same

We’ll feel like Roy Batty in the rain
like La Muerta and the burning snow
That’s life and the choices we make
and Time and Time and Time

I will hold you close
and let you go
I will let the ocean swell
between us
And look at the same moon

    Wow! I love the image the admins chose to go with the poem! Can you tell me what it’s from? 🙂

    Glad you like it, Maria.

    It is a detail of The Gundestrup cauldron. We thought this would be a good visual for your poem.

    Cheers, Bart
