  1. I don’t think I’ve been drawn in to anything so quickly and completely in a while. You’ve encapsulated the whole of our existence in one very powerful poem and I love it.

  2. This is what I was feeling when I wrote “Nothing ” on my blog but your feeling are expressed so fully and beautifully. I wish I had such talent.

  3. the earth almost stopped spinning,
    lacking compulsion to keep it up
    until that something appeared mid poem –
    thank you for keeping up your nothing
    part of the deal!

  4. The poem is beautiful. You give meaning to life and to the things that you do and see and feel and think. A rock is just a rock, until someone says this is from the moon. And that rock has a meaning, not s simple rock on your backyard. I love all your poetry!

  5. Great, lyrical. I see it performed liveโ€“โ€“slam. Favorite lines: If there was a glass half full/ I would drink the remainder/ To make sure it was empty

  6. Wow wow wow! Finding something in nothingness! I have been trying to do that all my life and now I realize it WAS something all along! And it was right in front of me all these years!! Powerful, wonderful, thought-provoking and simplistic at the same time! Bravo!

  8. I was feeling particularly, “Or was it that nothing was intrigued with me?” this evening until you stopped by and visited me. Thanks.

  9. Nothing to get excited about, but in its own way anything but nothing ! Very well done. The root basis for a philosophy of life that any nihilist would be proud to expand upon…

  11. Reblogged this on The Memory Of Trees and commented:
    I beg of you the favor, a few moments of your time for such a lovely poem. I have never re-blogged another’s work before, surely this one deserves the honor of being the first.

  12. I give you no praise for such a piece, I believe that would be counter-productive. I have nothing to say, so I will simply nod my head knowingly in your direction and remain silent.

  13. So, remember. You are not special

    You are nothing at all, just like me.

    At least one thing was learned.
    It’s not a total loss.
