i see the dark beyond
and ponder
its origin
its depth
its width
its breadth

you see the dark beyond
and walk through

will I ever be the likes of you

I love this. Simplicity in poetry is magical, I think.

Familiar yet original with meat on the bones, despite the skeletal appearance.

mmm.. juicy... minimal poetry is so much fun :) that last line just sums it up.. the pondering from the beginning continues.. not to move but to continue pondering

You're both seeing ...there's the light!

Hi Kristina, Good one, a different of way seeing things. Seems that you've notice things before and after. Gettin wise. Seeing that there is a light out there. There's hope ahead.

I love poems of light and darkness. It is a mystery to be able to walk through the dark beyond. Well-expressed in your poem.

Poets are either blessed or cursed with the pondering spirit while others unaffected by verse, pause not an inkling to reflect upon such things as you mention in this little gem of an ode of yours, Kristina.
