The Thinker as Poet

Aus der Erfahrung des Denkens

—Martin Heidegger

How like a           whisper the wind
engaging the cup of my ear.

How like a shout       these echoing
passages filter northwest to southeast.

How like a growl      the rustling leaves request
channel from shadows to true


How like a thought      disappearing
into thin air       these pages ruffling beneath
my pen       beneath a passing sun
beneath the loud, enchanting

chimes of Sunday in spring.


This poem appears in Four Blue Eggs, published by Homebound Publications in 2014. Make your purchase of the full collection here.
