A Nonconformist Haiku On The Rims

A Nonconformist Haiku On The Rims short poem

Photo by martinak15

Peek a soul-peeking
into an unghostly, sacred ghost —
in the middle of the night,
in the middle of nowhere,
until I find myself more flimsy
than a goldfish ghost
with bulging, story-telling eyes,
standing, staring, balancing on the mental-emotional
angels-peeking-into-the-fleshly rims.
Perhaps to discover there is no rim,
if we stay long enough?

Or is this a hallucination, a vision, a sighting,
like a dream… like entering another life?
Please help me, William Blake.
How did you endure
the jeers and mockery?
How did you feel non-guilty
when you glimpsed something cosmic
in that dewy droplet?
