Breaks the spell of Writers Block
Jalál (Glory), 5 Sharaf (Honor) 176 B.E. - Saturday, January 4, 2020
In this darkness
these words are photons
emanating from the poet's mind
reflecting off the reader's perceptions
and into the prism of their experience:
What does the poem tell the reader about the poet?
Wherever the reader is in space-time,
connotations lengthen a poem's wavelength
away from the poet:
What does the poem mean to the reader?
