the Presence of the absence of ‘me’




seven words attempting to describe one thing

a thing that can never be an object,
and therefore, can never be described

how then can It be found?

it can’t – it’s never been lost!

seven words all amounting to the same no-thing:

the Presence of the absence of ‘me’


~ miriam louisa
echoes from emptiness

  1. Beautiful, of course! It gives “me” the giggles for some reason – maybe my recognition of Truth… It’s similar to my “seeing” during my “window sitting” times – clear-seeing window 🙂

  2. Dear Christine – I just opened the post and saw the exclamation mark formed by the seven words! It made me giggle – it hadn’t been intentional – perhaps that tickled your fancy too … 🙂

    I love to think of you sitting at your *clear-seeing window* in the midnight hour … holding ‘your’ spaciousness open for who-knows-what …

    Thanks for your comment. Light, light! – miriam louisa

  4. I posted something today in response to your lovely poem and wonder if you saw it – you may find it suitable for inclusion here, if you like it. Thank you. Alberto.

    • Thank you Alberto – WordPress had stashed your poem in the spam folder – I’m glad you wrote again!

      What an inspiring expression – I just wish I could understand every word and nuance…

      Gratitude to you for sharing –
