Poem ‘Meditation’

Sometimes I hate you, I must
avert my eyes.

Other times I love you
and I’m crazy, I can’t leave you
alone.

Mostly though I’m indifferent,
you’re something there out
of my window on any
random day,
like the sparrows who chat huddled
side by side
on their privet hedge.

But whether you’re friend, enemy
or mere acquaintance, you are all
outsiders—
intruders in this precious
secret space

  1. smiles…makes me think of thoughts…esp in relation to the title…each one an intruder in that moment of sacred space…and its hard at times to silent them…

  2. I sometimes feel that way…I sometimes just want to be in the solitude…the place from where I create and anyone feels like an intruder. I like this image:
    “like the sparrows who chat huddled
    side by side
    on their privet hedge.”
