THE INNER SPACE: A DREAM JOURNAL QUOTE

We join spokes together in a wheel,

but it is the center hole

that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,

but it is the emptiness inside

that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,

but it is the inner space

that makes it livable.

We work with being,

but non-being is what we use.

  1. Emptiness is a timely subject. I recently felt an emptiness that I thought bordered on boredom, until I realized that this open, calm state was more active than boredom & more receptive to taking in what interested me. Great poem & Great blog !
