A Poem by Ashly Christen
"

late night scribbles

"

Be still in the madness

be quiet in the loud

let your spirits rhythm be found

are you dancing in circles

are you blinded by sight

perhaps the blackness is masked by light

in the darkness I find myself

in the clouds I open my mouth

lost in music drowned by steps

I fear this piece is nothing less

This year has found my muse muted... my poems have all gone silent in my head... Your words speak to me about trying to find the voice in the screaming world that surrounds us on a daily basis... I do so hope you keep sharing yourself with us, wondrous poet.

I liked this one a lot. There is a raw energy and a feel of spontaneity that make the whole piece flow perfectly, well done!

A very Zen like poem... sometimes when we ramble we make the most sense... mostly cause we are speaking on instinct rather then over thinking things. I enjoyed this.

Hey sometimes no sense makes the best sense :) You are welcome.
some nice paradoxes in this...

life is a series of opposites...or opposites residing just in the shadows of what we actually see...

words, poems, they are like that also.

nice piece... should it be "spirit's rhythm"?

third line should read "spirit's rhythm" with an apostrophe...

Love it! I love spontaneously written words from the soul...it brings fire...sounds like a late dance in a night club...but I could be wrong. Nevertheless, lovely write.
