Beyond Words

I am, by this poem and all others,

Going somewhere else,

To deeply feel between the words and phrases,

Between and within. Words are sacred, we know that.

Yet there is something even more sacred, even more


And so an invitation, solemn and serene,

To breathe deeply (and slowly) between each stanza,

Pause completely (and for long, for long) at the end of each line,

Feel around the back and sides of each word

I send you

Into a fullness of silence,

A place of perfect presence,

A knowing stillness,

A deeper sense,

Beyond words.
