"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time." (T S Eliot)
"A dark and chanted verse is what I am." (
Forough Farrokhzad)

RUMI'S FIELD


"Out beyond ideas of right and wrong there is a field, I will meet you there."
Rumi

There's no time left to take a chance again
We wandered and left our moment behind.
At first our choice was separate paths we took -
'Til there was no way back that we could find.

You sauntered and drove yourself to wreckage,
I climbed and I tried and went much too far.
Your end was tragic and much too early,
My fall was slow but led me to our scar.

Somewhere there is time we'll spend together -
In Rumi's field where there's no right nor wrong.
And those who see us will be like we are:
Glad to be one amidst a misjudged throng.

SONGS FROM THE SECOND CIRCLE


David Morisset's second book of poems is now available via Amazon.

It can also be purchased at CreateSpace (please see https://www.createspace.com/3659254).

The collection explores themes ranging from the romantic to the overtly political. David also endeavours to describe some of the pleasures we can know in today's messy, but still beautiful, world. Despite the shotgun-like diversity of his poetry, it is distinguished by an habitual return to the promises of new beginnings arising from failure and, at times, tragedy.
