A Powerful Pull
The outer show's what's hard to keep up
— the limitless blue of cloudless sky,
the progressing of green nudged to be.
Emptiness contains its own space,
wants for no time to fill nor shape to form,
lets you strip down to nothing
to feel nothing
but the powerful pull of possibility.

I wrote this poem for the Tuesday, June 1, Blog Carnival sponsored by Bridget Chumbley at One Word at a Time and Peter Pollock of Rediscovering the Church.
The Blog Carnival is a biweekly online event open to anyone. Participants write on a one-word prompt or topic. This week's is "emptiness".
At Bridget's place you'll find a list of links to all of the contributions, which are posted throughout Tuesday and often through to the end of the week.
The Blog Carnival's FaceBook page is here.
The prompt for the next Blog Carnival, on June 15, is "compassion".
