The Architecture of Conversing

image

Beside me, your mummers begin
repetition of words to form
a solid, something to hold on to.

As you hammer a picture in sound,
letters arrange in audible order
to hear who you are.

To speak building blocks, stack phrases
scaffold words of steel
structures to withstand tomorrow.

I am silent witness
to the rebuilding of yourself.

 “The most visible creators are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible ~ without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt. Their medium is simply being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see, but don’t have to draw…  Because they are the artists of being alive…  – Donna J. Stone

  1. Ali, this is beautiful. It makes me think of the sound of love coming in the words…. expressing the essence of who we are when we speak. And you seeing that as a witness. I love your poetry, and the consciousness you come from. Thank you.

    Feel free to contribute a poem for #forgivingfridays. I’ll be doing another post this Friday. 💜 Keep shining!
    Love,
    Debbie

    1. Debbie, as always, I appreciate your reflection. I will keep Forgiving Fridays in mind. I love the work you do to support others. Forgiveness opens doors so that the love can flow again. Who doesn’t want that?

      Be well and love loud,
      Ali
