One Single Impression: Sarcasm

Words fall into the chasm
Between a mind and a heart.
Whose?
We wish we knew, you and I.
You and I. We wish we knew.
***
Single leaf, dark night, chasm:
Oak tree, wind:
Music of solitude.

  2. I do so like this. The title, places the whole poem in a different light -- sometimes don't you just wish there was a "sarcasm font"?

  5. Very good Sandy.
    Sarcasm and chasm, oak tree, wind, leaf
    cuts between people. and yet unity softness and
    strength.
    Many relationships are like that. People love each other, sometimes they hurt each other through sarcasm because they know each other so well, but love prevails.You learn to accept each others faults and love is unconditional .You marry a dream and then live with reality

  8. Both very fine poems.
    I've learned a new word: "chasm", which in Italian is "abisso, baratro".
    Happy Sunday!

  10. I do not know how to be sarcastic and words of sarcasm can be hurtful at times.
    But pain, just as happiness has to be acknowledged as it will always exist to balance our life.
    Beautifully poignant.
    Have a lovely Sunday dear Sandy,
    xoxo

    Wonderfully poetic with such a difficult word as sarcastic.

  17. Nice, Sandy. And more complicated that I can handle.

    I did figure out that sarcasm breeds chasms but hadn't thought of it with that word, chasm.

  23. Hi Sandy,
    So true. Sarcasm can create this gulf/space of misunderstanding. Your imagery always draw me in. It's wonderful to read your poetry.

    ReplyDelete
  24. " You and I. We wish we knew."
    that says everything Sandy.
    Loved it....

  25. Words can gather in that chasm and live for years. This piece has a beautiful impressionistic feeling to it. Gentle and reflective.

  26. oh.. that'd be a irrecoverable fall, Sandy.. very difficult to choose from the chasm I think.. powerful take!

    never realizing so much space between mind and heart and the emotions that lie there... both the dark and the light... we are really beautifully made... complex yet beautiful...
