Beyond Words

The heart overflows
with delight, and wonder
brightens the world.

And not a word.
is needed.

The heart overflows
with tears of bliss, and awe
paints the sky.

And not a word
is required.

The heart overflows
with grief, and doubt
hides the horizon in shadow.

And not a word
is possible.

The heart overflows
with trembling,yielding
To the silence of Being.
