Inspired by Samuel Manashe to try short poems; but not in any way coming close to his genius.

 

 




Duality

Birth.

The first split.

Child and Mother.

Self and Other.

It is cool and crisp and effective. More words are not needed here.

I remember the moment I become aware of myself as "Self." it was an awakening and unsettling.

Well written, Dougie.

And perhaps birth of the first love. It may go on to be unconditional, or not, but it is the first love even if it is based upon dependency.

A poem of a few words that describes a whole life in a way.
