Tabula rasa

Another fasciniting poem from Tosha!
Still trying to understand it, but I look forward to reading it a few more times. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Peace, love & poetry to all,

Everything I Never Told You


I always notice the dreamlike quality of
clouds, their soft layers of hazy beauty.

I often see daisies in dry bones.

I dance with skeletons, ignoring the witchโ€™s

I stick my hand in the boiling
cauldron and call it comfort.

I pay no attention to the clockโ€™s
incessant noise.

Iโ€™ve repeated your name so many times
it sounds like an incantation.

When do I stop hoping?

When does your name mean

Do you remember dictionary?

I pile on the words trying to
reach your table.

For one moment, I grasp the surface
just as my chair folds but refuses
to collapse.

I pick up syntax from the ground.
Your form takes shape on the paper
only as you are walking away.

-Tosha Michelle

Author: Sherrie Miranda

I am an author who writes in order to create more peace and understanding in the world. I am a teacher who has taught students from many countries of the world. I am also a life and writing coach. I love to travel and first traveled to other countries before finally deciding to see some of the U.S., places that foreigners I met have been to, but that I hadn't. I am happily married to a teacher who identifies himself first, as a musician. We hope to someday travel together to places where I read my novel(s) and speak to people about loving life while Angelo plays his piano and entertains the audience too. I also hope to assist seniors and troubled teens to write their life stories in order to heal. Life has much to offer so I always encourage young people to hang in there and know that things WILL get better.
