We Are What Is

Thomas Hart Benson
Coastal blows
Draw us close
Knit and stitched
We breathe as one
With separate lungs
We are what is
Not skewed in cubes
Or obtuse views
All natural
In our region
Left of June
Under sun and tides of moon

  1. The whole of humanity that we are, breathing together as one organism. I wonder if that is why we do not see each other as we do not see ourselves. I saw them all as souls of the dead.Your internal rhymes are wonderful and I like the flow of the poem.

  2. Every line, syllable had a magic of its own..The imagery is so well portrayed through the rhythm of your words…Oneness, that is now absent in time! Amazing..
