you know
is because it
is your way to find
me where i am… where
the edge meets the whisper
that washes away the sands of
surrender, to touch me with patience

  1. Robin, thanks for visiting my site. I’m glad you included your site’s address in the comment. You have a very nice site here. i really enjoy the images to go along with the words. This poem Why is really nice. Brevity with not only a mental image but also the staircase picture created by your words. Also thought the lack of punctuation was a great idea here. This piece can be read in a few manners, dependent on how the reader pauses- Why, Why you Know- Nicely done:)
