Outside of the left field

Outside of the left field,

Past all the greatnesses,

And all the littlenesses,

Past the milestones of great deeds,

And the cobblestones of  misdeeds,

Past all the I am’nesses,

And past the You are ‘nesses,

Sits the lonely, shy I,

Alone in the playground,

Seeking Love, Looking for Light,

In the nothingness of twilight,

When all have gone home,

And the solitary swing sways in the wind,

Like an imaginary friend gently swinging.

Looking for the light in others,

Wanting to be a light for others,

Looking to do good and seeking good,

Wanting to give and receive love.

The gentlest gifts of childhood,

Encased in the smiles of innocence,

And as quartz scintillates,

In the light of the setting sun,

In the mind’s eye past the shadows of time,

It shines like priceless diamonds.

Charlie Bottle's passion is poetry. He has lived on three continents, speaks five languages and loves different cultures, people, music and food. He believes that "Poetry uses the economy of words to express the essence of our humanity." It is this magical use of brevity to express the profound that drew him to poetry. While his professional and personal life has pulled him in different directions, He continues in his discipleship of the craft and writes whenever the muse moves him. While English is his second language it is the language in which he lives, breathes, thinks and writes poetry.
