Haiku 5

Help us remember

the meaning beyond the words;

Now we will be free.

Words

If you read my words,

do not simply hold them in your mouth;

taste them, see if they are to your liking,

and spill them out into our silly little world.

Words

Write patiently,

darling.

 

Syllables don’t just

bounce

from cloud

to cloud

as if Noah’s Arc

was reinventing itself–––

 

a rainbow proclaiming

its glory.

 

Time–––

is slow,

when you discover it

piece by folded shirt

by flowing grass blade

to the piece of hair

falling on your cheek

pushed back by a stranger,

a smooth talker.

 

It’s like the wind:

how you can’t see the meaning

in words, you can only feel them.
