Open Soul Window

If only I could open
a window to your soul.
I would peer in and observe
the moving pictures within.
All the workings –
cogs functioning
to form thoughts,
ideas linked together
in chains of filmstrip
flashing on neuro screens.
Then I would understand
what it is to be you.
My understanding
could swim in the depth
of your emotions without
the fear of ever being lost.


In the next couple weeks my next poetry book will be coming out on I am very excited about this! I have been working very hard to put this collection together. I am calling it “Open Soul Window” – like this poem. I see the poems in the upcoming collection as windows into my soul – vignettes of the journey of life I have been through. Be on the lookout for more updates as the day approaches. Thank you all!
