Truths

November 3, 2010

This Tuesday’s poem is Truths by Helen Heath.

Alicia Ponder who selected it says:

On the surface it is straighforward, but underneath it has an elegance and grace that is quite breathtaking.  I could wax lyrical, but that is hardly necessary as the poem speaks for itself. It stands alone, a beautiful truth, as rare as any jewel,. . .

It is. I’ve read it six times since coming across it on Tuesday and each time I find something more in it.

Among the links to other Tuesday poets in the sidebar are:

if it be your will by Leonard Cohen at Type What You See.

Beyond Silence by Saradha Koirala at Lalialand.
