bits and pieces – 9/1/12

Thanks Neale.

I don’t demand of myself
to know the end of the story
I don’t know where every journey
will end

and so I walk
in varying degrees
of clouded knowing
painting pictures with words
to see the bits and pieces
just a touch more clearly
to see connections
begin to form
into paths taken
or un-chosen
for the moment

I see in part
with an appreciation
of the whole
which I can’t see now
or perhaps ever
by myself

perhaps knowing
is more communal
than I’d thought


About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
