Boom! Connection!
for Maria

If it’s true what they now say,
That my memories float off into the invisible everything,
Trailing behind me and the earth all mixed up connecting,
All of us to each other and every moment to every other;
My joy is to tap into those swirling trails and bring down my poetry.

It’s no surprise to me, that every word I write, has already been written;
Been whispered in love, over and over in every language, in every way,
Until my past might be your future, and yours, the beginning of a poem.
I just sit, the stenographer of collective consciousness, copying it all to paper…
And feeling humbled and blessed to have been given my waypoint of creativity.

We have only just begun to realize the meaning of, “Nothing new under the sun.”
We shine bright then we fade, every thought in our lives still somewhere.
Nothing lost and yet nothing new, we recycle each other, and form our own collages.
You say you know what I mean and who knows? You might even be part of the dream,
The one I had last night; I might have drifted into your memory stream and….
Boom! Connection!

    Very interesting poem,. Karima. You do capture the human communication tangle with a profound observation. That it has been done before. That the words and thoughts have all been used previously. That may be true, but I believe the challenge of learning here is to have these experiences pass before our eyes, literally. The thoughts and ideas need to pass thru our comprehension to be grasped and internalized. Otherwise-they are merely words on a page somewhere. It is your job to get the words and thoughts to glow and be recognized and understood. You make them dance and swirl and animate. So each separate person needs to see and embrace even the same words. To have any personal meaning. To be taken inside and define our own sense of meaning. Always shaded by you, the story teller. That is quite a responsibility! And challenge. You are quite skilled at it! Nicely done. Thick and chewy!

    My favorite poet concocts another brilliant thought! I wish you could convince the powers that be of this connection. Bob Dylan in Talkin WW 3 Blues, when finding another that dreamt he was the last one alive…..

    Well, now time passed and now it seems
    Everybody’s having them dreams
    Everybody sees themselves walkin’ around with no one else
    Half of the people can be part right all of the time
    Some of the people can be all right part of the time
    But all of the people can’t be all right all of the time
    I think Abraham Lincoln said that
    I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours
    I said that

    I put you right up there with Bobby Ruca!
