Life In Harmony
For a moment
I felt it.
For a moment it all
made sense.
For the moment,
the book rested on
book shelf.



Braving the mic at dVerse Openlink night.



  1. but once you opened the book, your life changes forever…or it could b the book of your life…like it being open to interpretation…nice new digs

    1. That’s actually what I always go for too. I think that poems should be personalized. If you can fit this piece into your life, your way then I think I’ve done my job as a writer.

    1. Thanks for commenting Sheila! I think sometimes we can only realize peace when we stay in the moment. The word balance was swimming around my head when I wrote this…that and I was grabbing my dictionary off the bookshelf!

  2. I like Sheila’s take on it, and I have the sense that you are making a distinction between theory and action (or reality), of finding in a moment what you sought for so long in the study of books. But since the title is “Sensible”, I find myself wondering if there’s a hint of ironic self-mockery going on: “sensible” folks might be said to take their heads out of the clouds of poetry books. Or I think too much….

    1. Hey Mark. Thanks for reading and thinking about the words. Personally, my head is always adrift. It tends to affect my day job sometimes…
      I was originally thinking about balance when I wrote this. But I do like what you’ve said. I can see now how the image of a something solid, like a book shelf, plays into that idea of keeping our minds grounded instead of constantly wandering among ideas (like my mind constantly does).
