When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

Full stop


In the absence of distractions   
my own darkness fills this silence   

Change is here again   
Planned path / unknown outcome   
A life to be –or not   

Too much time   
too many thoughts blinking in the dark   

Arbitrary memories flash here and there   
Fractals of a chaotic dream   
Intermittent doubts   

Change is the next step   

A possible success flutters around   
It crashes with uncertainty   
Transmutes into a full stop   

Temporary silence in a dark room   

Change is constant   

Doubts are doubted   

Silence fills my darkness

Full stop  .

  1. Oh yes Adriana, you have lassooed the ‘success-or-won’t-it-be’ dragon and granted me safety in your full stop. Beautiful and oh-so-functional, all in one piece.

  2. full light helps during dark times, then the full stops pass by…you know. Thanks for this one, it’s great!
