In Other Words - by Glenn Colquhoun

I read this poem today in INGENIO, the university of Auckland Alumni Magazine.

In Other Words

In other words
a poem is a way
of knowing you are alive
as shocking as fish leaping out of deep
as sharp as
light stabbing
through a row of trees,
as bold as
opening up your eyes during prayer
as simple as
lying awake in the middle of the night
listening to the sound od people snoring.
Every minute
of every day
of every life
is a full library.
        Glenn Colquhoun

I Love the idea of every minute being a full library. It's just cool.
