dialogue

Here’s a poem about something we desperately need yet seem to have too little of in today’s world.

the dialogue

in the darkness
suddenly i saw it

it went up
and then back down

it briefly paused
then up it went again

i tried to make it out
but couldn’t seem to

there i stood 
not knowing what to do

for me
this kind of dialogue
was 
after all
quite new

not done
it then went back
where it had been

and stayed there
for a while

and as it looked at me
it almost seemed to smile

without warning
up it went again

then hovered for a while
till off it flew

and there i stood
with nothing but the shape
that in my heart
it drew
