when the words dissolve upon our tongues

Dressed-up words misguide our naked thoughts far more than naked thoughts influence the use of dressed-up words. Words can be a narcissistic cover-up or masks expressing secondary emotions, even if the wordsmith is begging to be wanted, to be needed. If one desires to communicate with a purer intent, to cut through language's sinew of misinterpretation, and into truth's marrow, such communication can happen within wordless silence where blooms touch waves salt sweat true north, pantings in the cold, the swelling heat of iron ignition. When my tongue dissolves the words, laps-up innuendos and syntax errors of reality from in-between the honeyed surface of language, clarity's stimulation spins me deliriously. If this needs a pause, a breath to breathe, to feel the distance, our wavelengths will never cease to communicate. September 12th, 2015

    This could easily apply to poetry, as well. I am guilty of too often using too many words, too many lines, when saying too much does not mean better. We've often heard "less is more"... , Sometimes we can speak with our eyes, ears, and heart. Paying attention is the key ! I'm still learning how to do that :)

    Hullo, Chris! :) Yes, i think that when we pay real attention to what we, ourselves exude, those wavelengths, vibes, the truth is there, we only need to recognize it. Awesome poem. L&H, catie :)

    I really liked this piece....ESPECIALLY the first stanza which so aptly sets the stage for the rest...

    Our wavelengths will never cease to communicate... I really love that last line and believe in it.. To see one's naked thought is to really know the person and feel his pulse... So much to read and understand through each snd every line,and the ones in between silence. Awesome Chris !
