A Word

Posted to Action Poetry

I heard a word the other day
It will fill my brain for weeks

It made me realize something:
The bridge a word is
between brain & heart-

The only communication to be had
between those organs
so far apart-

The only way to really speak
to oneself, or be understood,
is conveyed

not by the thing
of a word-
but by the meanings our hearts infer..
