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 articulation;
subtle in its strength; a shared universal,

indwelling presence and recognition.
Words are for the makeshift

bamboo and rope bridging of distances
while silent love reveals the illusion of distance,

an evolving 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.
