“I Am Hungry…..Are You?”

This is a poem that I wrote last week.  After many many drafts, I am still not sure if it  conveys what I feel or if it meets the rules of poetry – but here it is anyway.

Does this kind of hunger gnaw at you night and day, that there is something more to be done than what we do, something more to be than what we already are….

Please share what you think…

I am hungry

To know,

To embrace,

To break rules,

To travel,

To do more—



Except stand in

A Revolving Door.

I am hungry

To be

A writer,

An artist,

A teacher,

A love

That does



To help

        Keep Minds from

Revolving doors.

Between the dots of

‘To Know’ and

‘To Be’

Is a swinging pendulum

Hungry to remain


In a space where

Creation and Transcendence

Dance together

On washing beaches.


Until next time

With Love and Respect
