The Smile of Emptiness and Nothingness

Fifteen thousand years ago

You were a king.

And thirty thousand years ago

You were a slave

Your past life was a long scroll of times

And the next lifeHow short ten thousand years are!

Yesterday is emptiness and nothingness,

Tomorrow is emptiness and emptiness

Where are you at this time

Emptiness and nothingness, Emptiness and nothingness

Buddha halo, the smile of emptiness and nothingness

Kevin Morris was born in Liverpool (UK) on 6 January 1969.

Kevin lost the majority of his eyesight at 18-months-old due to a blood clot.

He is a braille user and has happy memories of leafing through “The Oxford Book of English Verse” and other poetry collections in the school library.

 Kevin read history and politics at University College Swansea and graduated with a BA (joint hons) and a MA in political theory.

In 1994 Kevin moved to London where he now lives and works. He began writing poetry in 2012. Most of Kevin’s poems can be found on his website, https://newauthoronline.com/ which also contains links to his published works.  His Twitter account:  https://twitter.com/drewdog2060

Much of Kevin’s poetry is inspired by the environment. He lives close to an historic park in the Upper Norwood/Crystal Palace area (a suburb of London). Upper Norwood derives it’s name from the Great North Wood and remains of the greenest parts of greater London.

Being visually impaired Kevin uses Job Access with Speech or JAWS software which converts text into speech and braille enabling him to use a standard Windows computer or laptop. You can also contact Kevin at: newauthoronline.wordpress.com

Shadows

“On such a day, when the winter sun

Casts my shadow upon yonder wall,

It is difficult to recall

That all

This will, one day be done.

In future will some other one, sitting here, and seeing their shadow  fall

Upon this self-same wall,

Know that they may not forestall the  night

When dancing shadows are,

forever lost from sight.”
