Nothing Is Wrong (orig. poem by Mark Nielsen)

Nothing Is Wrong   (4-25-17)
Nothing is wrong.

I have seen and felt Something that is right. 


some wave, some rhythm, some rhyme, 

some treasure, 

too sublime to measure–

that is not wrong.

There is a bright and shining Something

smack dab in the middle

of this nothing

(or at least in the same neighborhood).
Not everything is nothing.

Something is always something,

whether or not 

it is a whispered sweet nothing,

whether or not we

see that it is good.
Something is right.

Some thing is true. 

Real. Reasonable. Right.

Not just right but right here.

Right now. Now right. Forever.

A solid something. Fixed.

I knew what it was once.

This string around my finger

is here to remind me.
