Rummaging between old papers, I found this poem that I wrote in 2006. I like it, so decided to put it up here...

Solids, opaque objects
Definite, visible
Dense, Impenetrable

Transparent as air am I
Know me in and out
Like sunlight knows the river water
easily knowable, easily penetrable

Alas! Irony! It is but few
Who have eyes to see transparence
Eyes and minds are trained to the obvious
Clear, transparent, penetrable am I
Only for eyes that can see nothingness...

Excellent would be an understatement. I am guilty of not being a regular reader to your Blog, but when I do return, I read all thee latest posts. And while this one came from the past, I think it's one of the best you've written. It almost made me visualise, which in itself is such an accomplishment. Something that I cannot do with my poems, which is why all of them have a picture attached!

Kudos! Bravo!
