Being human…

we can trace desire in brushstrokes
compose our feelings in a song
dream that we are someone else
all night long
we write past, present and future
find possibilities in words
but we cannot swim like dolphins
or swoop and dive like birds

My response to Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Human

This week Susan would like us to write new poems giving what is human its place in the natural world, the solar system, galaxy, and/or universe.

    However much one desires to accomplish one’s physical limitations can frustrate our efforts

  2. Yes, I think we all have to keep in mind that though we can do some wonderful things (with brushes or with pens) we cannot do all (marvelous) things that other living things can do!
