to create meaning

Words After the Glimmering

the gestalt of who we are
groks glimmers of the truths just beyond us,

to get to such ideas we scaffold words
who can help create the meaning our soul knows is there,
the elephant is there, and though we’re blind,
we seek to know it,

many’s the time I’ve heard another say
“those words say what I feel,”
a resonance of the net of words
to the inchoate thought and feeling
just beyond our current consciousness,

we know there is greatness behind us and before us,
and we struggle to use our words to connect and build meaning.
