《字里行间》The spaces between words

《字里行间》The spaces between words

The roots of tree of life
are the spaces between words
the life’s hidden chapters

生命之树的根
是字之间的空格
隐藏的生命的篇章

  1. amazing truth. i am very seriously waiting for your poetry book on stalls.

    • Seriously? One of my Dutch friend ask me to publish a book on photography, and he said his girlfriend will be the first one to buy, and I even do not have the idea to write that book. After his encouragement then I am seriously thinking about it.

      You are the seond to encourage me to publish a book, and saying the same thing! But really, I always think that I am not doing good enough, and I keep on improving. I am reluctant to add to the noise in the musics of literature.

      If it really happens one day, then still like from the beginning, I still wish I have your painting in the book =). This will be our dream!

      • your poems have an ethereal quality, with too much rubbing that beauty may get ruined.

        i dont know if you can feel it yourself, but if you can print them out in a nice sized font and read them when you are in a tranquil mood you will understand what i am talking about.

        i read lots of poems every day, but so many wonderful poems from one poet are very rare.

      • Sometimes I feel happy, and sometimes sad, and tears in my eye when I read my own poems because all of them are my inner feelings, and (eternal) memory.

        But I never know how others perceive the poems and resonate with the feelings associated with the poems. I am just glad know that about your perception.

        Whenever I polish the poem, there will be at least a few words less, I want to get them down to only the ‘truth’. Picasso once said, Arts is a lie that makes us realize the truth.

        Thank you my dear friend Sharmishtha, for your unreserved encouragement!

        One more thing, the reason I like your drawing so much is because they are not polished as well. I am also enthralled by your passion in writing, and so talents in writing different forms of literature!

      • if you edit your poems, please be careful not to ruin their purity, their depth. sometimes editing makes a work better and sometimes worse.

      • You are right, I really (x2) like people are commenting when they feel something is not right =) in my post.

        Thank you!

        Hope you solve your tag problem too, but I am still not very familiar with the tag and the display of blogs at the wordpress.com.

      • if i ever encounter something i dont like in your post i will let you know.

      • That’s great! I feel the wordpress.com readers are very polite and friendly, but I also need criticism. I used to not have any skill in telling people my honours opinion, now, I am not skilful still, but I first find what I genuinely like about something/someone before making any comment.

  2. I second Sharmistha! You really do not realize what ya write yourself until you read it all over again and again. You have a passion burning in you to praise the beauty of Mother Nature! If ya publish a poetry book, I assure you I will be the first one to buy it!:)
    Much love,
    -Naima.

  3. Your words fill the spaces between the worlds with light and humanity … thank you.

    Take Care,
    Daniela

    • You are right after I give a thought about what I have written, I am trying to make every word to become alive =). Thank you for making me to discover about myself!

      Love,
      kc
