What Are You Missing?

Zen Humor

I’ve been thinking so much
I miss a lot.

While I’m thinking about what happened
something else is always happening.

So I tried not thinking
and began to think about that…

Tonight, waking, half asleep
I found this.

It was there,
a delight.

I’ve been up since
writing this damned poem.

Thinking about it.

This is the kind of multi-dimensional, interactive poetry I really enjoy. It's the new direction in the poetic arts, I believe. I also enjoy the flow of this poem and the way it so clearly describes my feelings on a sleepless night when the big questions loom even larger in my mind. You were right, Dave. Till you're over 60 nothing makes sense.
