Speaking of Nothing



Slowly, she turned her head

nothing there that she could see

only stillness and a lovely feeling.


“Hello Nothing, and what have you

come to tell me today,” the woman said.


“How may I help you — or is it that

you’ve come to help me?”


Still nothing (but love) in the silence.


She (being human and all) went on

cheerfully chatting with nothing.

“What? What do you want?”


Nothing said nothing, of course.

In the silence, the day softened even more.


The woman smiled.

What had touched her was “nothing.”

What she felt in her heart was everything.
