nothing but everything

it is not nothing
but everything that is empty
while everything is momentary
nothing is imperishable


It has been too long since I updated my blog. As mentioned in my previous post The Sun Shifts, life took over me, but it is only momentary.

I came across this poem I had written a year ago, inspired by #orjay on Twitter. Have fun deciphering it, I had to read it a couple of times myself.

  1. Your poetry reads more and more like a Zen master’s. It has the magic of getting the reader to come back to it agin and again in search of yet another layer of hidden meaning. And doesn’t disappoint. And that’s what draws me to it!
    Hope you’re well, Sonya?


  2. Dear Sonya,

    You have a beautiful blog, both in the word-gems and visual art.

    This poem wonderfully points to the fullness of emptiness and the fecundity and imperishable nature of the ground of being.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
