Imagine

Can you imagine
holding the world
in your hands?

Can you really?

Then imagine it now
the world                  in the palm of your hands
spinning on its axis.

I want you to imagine it.

Close your eyes.

Think on it.

Block out     everything else.

Focus. Focus. Focus.

Don’t read on until
You found it—feel it.

Now that you’re there:
You know how
I feel every time
I hold her.

    Heavy… and delightful… your poetry is always deeply moving. :))

      Thanks so much. It’s a pleasure to have moved you in such way.

      • Lia says:

        I don’t know why… but your dry lines always leave me smiling. :))

      • bejamin4 says:

        Dry wasn’t the feeling I was going for. Maybe you have a crush on my words, but of course I wouldn’t want to assume. However, possibly they’ve replaced George for you. 🙃

        Haha I was wishing I could delete that comment just moments ago. Timing… it’s pretty wild. My wording was not great. Wordcrush is better. :)) I’m hopeless at times. But you brew a strong wine. 🥴🙃🤷🏼‍♀️😉

      • bejamin4 says:

        Exactly a “wordcrush”; this is what I was meaning precisely, but you said it better. The feeling is mutual on this kind of thing. Hopefully you’ll come by again for a sip or two whenever you’re feeling up to it. Do enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

        I’m addicted… so yeah, I keep drinking the whole bottle… and likewise. :))
