endings and beginnings – conversation – 6/20/13

Each poem I write and send out, starts a small conversation among a few back to me or onward with others, or within one who is touched in some particular. Each one that works, sets us to play out an expression of God or Love or some other aspect of being alive, in our head and heart. And I delight when that personal experience breaks out and becomes conversation. I delight in the glimpses I get from time to time, of the community of conversation.

between me

in and around
something I hold
to be important
or key
as an understanding
a growing relationship
or just one more step together

and you

a word
a few back and forth
and I see through your eyes
for a moment
to see what strikes you
what colors you see in the world

and each such connecting
tells me a bit more
of you
the world
and the God who holds it all together


Thank you


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.
