Without Words

This poem is from the Ten Pictures, Ten Poems, Ten Poets, Ten Days challenge by Debbie Guzzi Painting #1 Blue and Green Music - Georgia O'Keeffe 1921 Without Words Quiet rivers whisper amongst themselves praising each other’s dance, captivated in transit. Delighted by the opportunity to speak without words. Utterances pass beyond imagination, rivers silent, charmed by one another's gestures. Passions superseding what fingertips brush over: a scarf lost in the wind blindly finding her way, a sheer curtain waves reaching for a blue sky. Thoughts of you render me helpless with just one— stroke of a string without words you have painted me joyous.
