Bamboo and rope
You were silent without motive
but so many fine repercussions,
one being a palpable demonstration
of love as emanation
independent of glibness, articulation;
subtle in its strength; a shared universal
indwelling presence and recognition.
Words for the makeshift
bamboo and rope
bridging of distances;
love reveals the illusion of distance,
an evolving, silent response,
a steady permeation
holding together the hope of the world.
O child of God, bite your tongue
even as you write this poem down.
