Museum of a Simple Journal

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 2 by Nhojj



Since I began journaling, I feel so much more comfortable in my skin. There is indeed magic in expressing one’s thoughts and feelings on the page...


Ancient civilizations regarded writing as magic 
Making the intangible tangible 
Priests moving hands and
Where before there was space 
Markings appear

Ideas, memories, feelings, dreams 
Flowing from the invisible mind 
Through forearms and fingers 
Materializing along lines into 

I view writing as ritual prayer
The thread connecting me to answers 
Life is the test

Connecting dots and 
Like a child 
Pencil in hand 
I begin...

Dot to dot
A tentative shaky line
Dot to dot
A hint of an outline 
Dot to dot
Present and future align
Dot to dot
The past does not define
Dot to dot
Another day another page
Dot by dot
Another book another stage
Dot by dot
I chip away at the rubble
Dot by dot
I strip away all the trouble and

Patiently awaiting
Beneath decayed confusion
Maybe centuries old...
A gem
A priceless antique
A relic from another time period
Finally seeing the light of day
We are right to say
Hindsight is 20/20

I realize 
How many times...
I passed the test
How many times...
I did my best
How many times...
You did the rest
How many times...
We were truly blessed
How many times...
We are truly blessed 
So many times...

So behind this desk I sit
In my PJs... a decent writing outfit
Ready to face this excavation pit 
Paper permit in hand now
The examination begins

Life morphs into art 
My soul is the chart
Forever preserved in 
The museum of a simple journal entry…
