    the brightest light shines
    from the darkest places


    the gray wisp of smoke
    that was once a girl

      this makes me think of circle. or maybe the square ones won. found more simple logic. idk. your work is always good but i don't get half of what you mean sometimes with these small ones. i think of it like a circle/cycle in a square. the circle lost because the cycle got stuck in the square. i guess that's my take. hopefully it's slightly a give.

      ...and didn't she almost shine so well
    Said her demons with a grin..
    But darkness always falls
    At the same time, same place..
    Over and over again.

      Ever notice how when you think the room is light proof...a crack of sunlight always seems to make its way in?

      A very haunting piece. Like another commenter, I'd like to know more about the smoke-girl and her situation. I love the fact that even though she was "once a girl" she can still look for the silver lining. You've captured both sadness and hope in this poem--very well done.

      Very good piece. I love how it is short and simple yet effectively personifies what you wanted to say. Great job.

      this is quite haunting, Bill. whenever i meet someone new i always think to myself, how they got to the state they are in. ive met men with 4.0 and two degrees from a major university that had lost everything and was now living in an abandon building smoking crack. etc...when i read this tale i cant help but think to myself, how did she become but a wisp? you always say so much in such few words...

    thats my 2 pence worth

      yes, i kind of see a girl who has either wasted away from drugs...

    or a prostitute who sees herself as only a shadow because she is ashamed...

    and yet someone sees what she was, what she could be again...and realizes she still has a heart and soul...

    i like the title..the play on "One"---

    love short pieces like this.

      Oh, oh, what's the story behind this image?????? Anyway I think it's an excellent "tiny poem" because it has that haiku virtue of pathos and also got me going anyway!

      I find this strangely romantic in a way. I read the first part and was like "eh", but then the second half was like "huh"

    and then I tried it backwards

    "the gray wisp of smoke
    that was once a girl


    the brightest light shines
    from the darkest places


    And it makes sense either way...which is rather poetic on its own.

    Something about this piece that I just love.

    Very cool

      Oh this reminds me of that proverbial "seedy" side of town shadey bar with the smell of stale beer & cigarette smoke but through it all you can always find beauty brighter then the glow of fluorescents or jukebox glare.
    Or the ghost of a lover coming through in smoke rings hauntingly hovering as a halo never quite able to let her go.
    Oh yes this is wonderful from all angles!!
    The smoke is wise...I love watching smoke...whisps and clouds. Small things amuse and all I guess.
    Honestly Bill, you have a gift of words (we all do) not everyone knows how to string them together so they sing life's poetic songs. I've not always been able to critique or even give good feedback but you have always held my attention and swept me away!

    Well done Sir :)
