Nothing #atozchallenge #poetry #photography


N

There is a place called “nothing”

devoid of space and time

I guarantee it’s real

Represents a frame of mind

***

“Nothing” you might say is empty

Some might say it’s flat

A question merely lingers

“Nothing”- where is that?

***

Could nothing be a place

A place where you are not

People point and gawk

For some – it is their lot

***

Many say its fiction

Others say it’s fact

Sadly, I have lived there

Never wanting  to go back

***

I pulled this poem from my 2010 archives. I tried in the style of Dr. Seuss to use simple rhyme and rhythm to make  astute  and silly observation.

“It was at that age
that poetry came in search of me.” 
― Pablo Neruda,

Neologism
A newly coined word. Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” is filled with them, including “slithy” and “gimble.”
