Pin It

Poem: Zeitgeist Jaunt 

A poet walks into a room

with a camera, like, to write it down

To capture this thing which says to folks

this is the moment which evokes

Everything about you, every thing

about all of us, listening

All about you, and her and me,

the wind, the stars, the sun and sea

That thing, the thing, the very one thing

makes meaning – makes the stars go shimmering

We walk into rooms remembering

to find it, and sing

And we sing and sing and sing and sing

and sing and sing and sing and sing
