I Wonder – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Sarah is hosting Poetics with an invitation to write a poem around the word blue.

dVerse Poets – Poetics – Blue Tuesday

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. And in that space lies our power to choose. And in our choice lies our growth and freedom.” (attr) Victor Frankl

I Wonder 

Where sky collides with earth,
where oceans meet with clouds
in indecipherable moments,
a conversation easily irrupts,
translated between something 
grounded and something free,
I'm not always certain of the 
meaning but it doesn't seem to
matter, this convergence is
devoid of portent, words as
worlds so light, soft as night,
spoken in tones of translucent 
blue sounds that enfold me
and I wonder when I will return
beyond my between.

  5. Thankyou, Paul, for a Sensurround poetic experience this Thursday morning, in which you captured a sense of wonder, especially in the lines:
    ‘in indecipherable moments,
    a conversation easily irrupts,
    translated between something
    grounded and something free

    ‘spoken in tones of translucent
    blue sounds that enfold me’.

  6. The ocean does tend to transport us to that liminal space. Nicely done!

  7. ‘words as
    worlds so light, soft as night,
    spoken in tones of translucent
    blue sounds that enfold me’

    – So beautiful that the meaning becomes irrelevant!
