An Old Beginning
-M. Taggart [author’s site]

Talk beautiful and watch the world collapse-
Humanity disbelieves its current balance
and once again painted prints are unable
to cover anything in entirety, so it spreads,
unending, as though it has finally found
communion in the space inside our heads,
where we live while watching our thoughts,
and they are indeed beautiful, yet we talk
only to ourselves for fear of the unyielding
pressure poured from one-to-another, as the
word awaits our final form of courage to speak
not only in the darkness of our minds, or to
the woods we find validation within, but to
our fellow people, all of the things we’ve wanted
to share, caressing our differences and
celebrating our cultures, and to hell if the world
collapses for the greatness of kindness and beauty.
We’ll build a new one.

    A wonderful selection. The flow is round and rhythmic, stabbing beautiful phrases and images into the space above the page. Eloquent, but a simply stated premise draped in the most beautiful metaphors. I love the marriage of internalized thought to external actions.

    This is indeed the way the world feels right now. Interesting because I sometimes talk to myself when I am alone. Mostly I am talking to God about the thoughts in my head. You captured the way many of us feel. I couldn’t agree more about the trees. Lovely piece. Feels very honest. ❤️ joni

    1. What a thoughtful response. I took talk with God…often and God has much to do with many of my pieces. From direction, to meditation, to output. Mostly I never know what I’m going to write and then it’s written and there it is. Whatever it might be. I hope you have a wonderful day!

    We definitely need more love and understanding! Sorry if my mind went to the political side. I hear some sadness and loss.
