A common space for harmonic peacemakers
I’ve taken quite some time
trying to find the words to describe
this … ’experience’ that I’m having inside.
Hours, days, weeks spent scribbling wildly with a pen
thinking “I’ve got it!!!”
And then - No,
crossing it out again.
I’ve read great literature and poetry, seeking inspiration.
I’ve felt inspired,
I really have felt inspired,
still, the words haven’t come
Getting desperate, I’ve hurled a bag of scrabble tiles at a wall
in an infinite universe they just might fall
forming the exact words I’ve been looking for.
They might do one day but I gave up after the 64th try.
I started asking everyone I encountered:
“Have you felt this experience, do you have the words to describe it?”
They’d say “what experience?”
I’d talk for 20 minutes or so,
then realise I don’t have the words to describe it.
So forget all this, I thought, I’ll listen to my master!
I sat in silence and listened
and joy began to overwhelm me from inside like a…hmm
excellent . . . . nice write
Thanks Bill, means a lot..
the words fill me with a 'déjà vue' ~ long time ..
'if all the sky was paper and all the trees were pens and all the sea was ink there would not be enough of any resource to complete the task of saying how wonderful love truly is.. there can be no end to it but no matter when we find we have to dance around in joy..regardless'
you're a great poet and thinker, and always find the right words. I thank you for that...
