Then I can almost touch

If relationships form an architecture
then I can almost touch
the threads as conversation weaves

There is so much conversation to learn. Can we fold converse back on architecture?

One of you holds

Conversation is more than you have written. Sometimes you forget heart. Heart and you: One of you holds reins, it does not matter. You move as one.

Why is there beauty?

Why is conversation so beautiful, why is there poetry (did you hear your easy unrhymed words to me, this morn?), when yes and no and clipped sentences would get done our business?

Murmurs of peoples

One with one
Also with a whole people
One writing to many
Or to generations
Murmurs of people to peoples
Words
Glances
Momentous occasion speeches
Ordinary everyday
Tight squeeze humanity
Here conversation steals upon us

What would you give?

If conversation were a ceremony
What would you here give?
Only something of yourself

Footprints in the Windsm # 2148–The shade the eddies the rocks

Footprints in the Windsm # 2148

When the stream flows
water takes on oxygen
and the fish live more intensely
This is our conversation
we the fish
the shade the eddies the rocks
the sun the raindrops

Ritual sometimes fire

Conversation is a ritual for belonging
Sometimes a sacrifice, a fire
Sometimes a thanksgiving

Conversation brings quiescence to life
Marries, unnoticed, sacred and mundane

Fairs and outdoor bazaars

The fairs, the outdoor bazaars, are conversation too. We are getting something from one another, giving by our presence. Passing it along to the next ones we meet. Touching in a glance, a word, a breath.
