Ad Infinitum


’twas I
was’t not?
set I

set sun
set seed
set growth

set bud
set flower
set eye

set beauty
set heart

set a-wooing
set seed
set son

set growth
set scene
set seen …

…’twas I
was’t not?
set I …

(ad infinitum)

This poem was inspired by Jackie Blair McSween’s painting “Solar Blossom”

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. A poem, a game, a statement. Nice one Ben.


  2. This one is a lot of fun.


  3. Your work attracts me for its creativity and endless energy. This is a prime example! I love the way you vary your style and push the boundaries of my expectations. Wonderfully done


  4. And ’round and ’round it goes! What VW said – your poetry is always so creative, and I would add challenging (in a GOOD way!)


  5. A paper and pen is as limiting as a canvas at times….
    Thanks Ben, a beautiful poem.


  6. Sometimes you can only point. 🙂
