Closer we become…our thoughts aligned
Words like sheer flighted birds
ripple through time and space,
aloft and indistinct,
awaiting a heart to grasp their core
and for thoughts to implore their essence.
And so they remain
until wrenched from plight,
letters black and white prevail
and find place upon a thought,
a possibility, a meaning fought to stay.
Eyes flicker like the morning light
through rustling trees,
collecting letters and words
as thoughts become like prey to ease
a resolution, and understanding find its mark.
And if words be placed in eloquent ways,
and beauty transcends those thoughts in play,
then a heart does glow, just to know
the thoughts of another, and
warm those thoughts attest all life.
For in connection there is beauty,
and in written words a heart’s release
to thoughts perhaps unthought,
and enticed to flight by a creative mind,
to inspire life and closer bring our souls in kind.
