Today's Four Poems

Search only site

If you're ready and willing to reach beyond the outer as far as the inner, you're invited to spend some time in this oasis of poems and ideas. The Web, like much of outer living, offers deserts of glamor and greed, quick thrills and quick spends. The inner life is different. Poems in this site suggest a mellower view of the world. Some might say it's an odd view but, by definition, any oasis is an oddity in a desert.

Most of the poems in this Noon Out of Nowhere collection are fairly short and easily understood. Think of each poem as beginning with silence, then presenting a few serious or humorous thought-pictures, then returning to silence. Some of the poems will stick with you and some won't, but the silence behind them is important.
