Words -


I

Symbols of significance
Caught by the wind
Weightless words flung out
Roll like tumbleweed
In the space between you and me

Sounds pointing to
A mystery
Did you catch the meaning?
When I said I love you
Was the word enough?

A simple word or two
The spoken symbol
Pointing to something else
A riddle
Love’s enigma

We look for meaning
In the word
We search the nuance
Seeking the key
Hoping for safety

Perhaps love
Is in the space
The space between
You and me, and
There, there is safety

Perhaps there is no key
No safety, no words, just
The weightless significance
Between you and me

Rolling like tumbleweed
