Erika – Chapter 5
February 9, 2011 § Leave a comment
This Sunday, I look forward to a return to prompt posts and video reflections! Til then…
I stare at those edges, where language becomes impotent and yields to love’s largesse. I breathe them in… those moments too broad and deep for words. When you gasp from a soul-surprise or body-burst. Or loose a piggy-squeal-of-delight ’cause life just served you a bonus. Or you snorkle a hee-haw-snorty laugh ’cause it’s just so funny, you’d give a rib to make room for its passage. Or even when you heave-n-howl from the base of your being because you just lost someone who mattered most to you. Those are the apex sounds of being a human. And I dig them for that reason. Because they carry what words cannot.
As does the Language of the Birds. And thunder. And waves. And your lover saying your name.
