Bamboo and rope

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.
