Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem wonders why you’re reading this in the top half and then tries to answer the conundrum in the bottom half, based on his own experiences. Thanks to Zemanta for providing a couple of nice greenygrey photos. Here’s the poem:
Breathing Works Both Ways
why spend time in my lifework
in this age
of digital liberty,
when we all
have the means for creativity,
to write, draw, photograph, speak and sing
exhaling, inhaling
for reading, looking, observing, listening and pleasure
sometimes we have to absorb
what is around
outside the mind
to learn how
others perceive the world we share
