Elena Sandu


Connection


-Who am I?
...A name?
...A piece of paper?
...The pigment of my skin?
.. Forms on my bones?
-Hmmm...
those may be only stamps...
Try again!
rewind: crfdjchdrchrfdsj
Who am I?
Celestial dust
the oceans nano part.
Tears. Smiles.
Peace. Joy. Sadness.
Try again!
Who am I?
Parents. Siblings.
School friends
neighbour friends
their parents their siblings
teachers coaches tutors
bosses colleagues
lovers, partners
wives husbands
children.
The children's friends
Their family
their family friends,
the friends of friends..
Image taste thought
motion...
-Stop!
Asking again:
WHO AM I?

- If not
lost thing,
than I'm
the memory
of many.

    I really enjoyed this poem. it is very well written and expressed.
    It reminds me of a poem I have written called Reflections take a
    look when you have time. We all have to take a good look at
    ourselves sometimes. We are somebody and we are beautifully
    and wonderfully made. A unique creation you are Elena. (Report) Reply

    Like a mirror we are playing many roles just when we face our characters to different people..and in this big connection the invisible string tied us all together from heart to hearts with love and care signals..._Soul (Report) Reply

    Don't you dare the delete the word. It is genius and genius like this poem must be around long enough to be loved and appreciated in its totality. Don't change a thing. (Report) Reply

    Hahaha thank you for asking: that was a playful time, I was trying to find out how could I write the sound of rewind. I was not quite happy with the choice but as any game played alone, eventually will have its time of bore. I could delete that word, not convinced yet I will think about. (Report) Reply
