But We Do Not Talk

We walk the city streets to the beat of sidewalk bands . . .
But we do not talk
We stroll through lush, green meadows and farmland . . .
But we do not talk
We stride along country roads where myriad life abides,
And our eyes spy amazing mountains in the distance . . .
But we do not talk
We sleep under the stars and moonlight so softly bright,
Overwhelmed and awed by sight of such quiet might . . .
But we do not talk
We breakfast by flowing river with cool wind blowing,
Showing us the great power of nature, tower of heaven
On earth, place of my birth, and we pace ourselves . . .
But we do not talk
Your look is like an open book to be read by the wise,
But your gaze is also an alluring maze that dismays
And confounds even the most profound . . .
And who can sound the depths of your soul?
You are Soul — Soul of heaven — and you fill my bowl
Without speaking a word, yet you are the Word spoken
And not just in token conversation but in new creation;
You are my all-in-all without whom I would surely fall,
So I answer your spoken, unspoken mysterious call . . .
So I answer your spoken, unspoken mysterious call . . .
But we do not talk

  1. “But we do not talk”, and yet it’s so easy to begin. Even if it means talking to thyself. Very perceptive and spot-on depiction of human relationships.

    1. You are so right . . . and, yet, in this piece there is an holistic communion that goes beyond the mere spoken word, and that communion says more than (maybe) the spoken would could possibly speak . . . At least, that’s what I was trying to convey. LOL All the best to you, as always, and w/blessings!!! 🙂
