Were I A Poet

Were I A Poet

written by: Eli Garcia


Were I a poet,
my best work would contain no words
but simply hold forth the contrasting textures of silence.

Here! Run your fingers through these.
Are they not beauty?

And this
the sum of us
pressed between blank pages
offered with silent eyes
and still dance.

And here
breathless joy twined with light and laughter
braided into love’s hair with forest bits
spread beneath our tangle
amid gnarled trees and boulders.

And you
my other for most of ever
gift tender witness of all
we may yet be.

And I
so much more
than words
to touch
to say.
