There Were No Him, Her, Them...


First, A Haiku...


She breaks that big stone
into many small pebbles;
myth quietly dilutes
 
 
***

and now the Poem..for prompt Myth..
 
There Were No Him, Her, Them..
 
 
Many years went by
As I continued to blame
Him, her, them
For all that went haywire
But then you know
Myths have this peculiar destiny
They break quietly
I saw them breaking 
When I slipped and fell
Inside my own darkened depths
In some inexplainable moments
For the first time
I met myself and knew
There were no Him, her , them
It was all about 'Me..'
Oh, have I missed telling you, that
When myths break
The silent sound gives
Birth to light as
Darkness whithers away...

  2. I like the image of breaking a large stone into small pebbles, most probably blow by gentle blow...

  14. Yes, I so agree with your beautiful writing. I have had to find me by breaking up the big stones into little pebbles to find the light. Embracing your words.
