Poetry

Emptiness

It’s the space within the pot that makes the pot
Otherwise, it would be just pottery with no pot
It’s the silence between the notes that make music
Otherwise, it would be just noise
It’s the emptiness within your house stone walls that make your home,
Otherwise, it would be just another rock boulder
It’s the space within the cage that makes the cage,
the silence within that brings peace
We have this emptiness within that hides in consciousness and intelligence
We suppress it with noise and clutter
Learning to silence the noise illuminates the inner light
Embracing that we can only fill an empty cup,
allows us to empty ourselves of unwanted baggage,
making space for all the values and possibilities.

  1. Dear Gifted One,
    This piece of poetry has the weight of gold in it. Your flowing words make one feel…. the cry of the soul in song form…. and know….. that only HE, the One Who made us and loves us, can fill our emptiness.
    Thank you for your touch that has blessing in it.

  2. Am literally out of words of how you beautifully wrote this piece. Am awed…
    I loved the conclusion,… ‘Embracing that we can only fill an empty cup,
    allows us to empty ourselves of unwanted baggage,
    making space for all the values and possibilities.’
