Other


I am the smooth surface of a pond
reflecting your image back to you.

I am the darkness
 around the stars in the night sky;
I am what you cannot see.

I am a pebble resting in a deep pocket,
smooth and inscrutable.

I am what remains.
I am other.

For G-man's FF55.

  1. The other is cool
    The other sure does rule
    The other is grand
    Now back to my litterbox sand

    I am the darkness
    around the stars in the night sky;
    I am what you cannot see.

  6. This is the layer between shared words. The other often times is the foundation of what is..just less noticable. I enjoyed this a lot.

  11. You certainly are "Other" as indicated by your name. I celebrate your otherness. I want to wrap myself in your otherness. I want to immerse myself in your otherness. I am your "other" from another mother!

  12. Thank you Timoteo, welcome to the 'Other' side! And I'm old enough for the 'another mother' to remind me of an album by Dan Fogelberg, Twin Sons of Different Mothers. A happy memory for me :o)
