THE CUP

 

Is your cup

Half empty

Or half full?

Do you know the difference?

 

Between an impassionate kiss

And a gentle loving touch

An unconnected grasp

And a warm loving embrace?

 

Love

And lust?

Life

And living?

 

Cookie cut

Thoughts and actions

And a roaring roiling river

Of spontaneous interaction

 

With life

With light

With you

With me

 

The cup

Is always empty

Filled to the brim

With sweet nothingness

 

The blank blackboard

Open and empty

 

To all

To everything

 

To you

To me
