would that it were possible
to write pure instrumental lines
an imperceptible dissolution
into a henry moore shaped whole
like grass pondering dandelions
or two children holding hands
light variations
to untie the sublime from this humanness
of language, the moral, the spirit,
tethers which dull the glisten
of wordless beauty vaulting
the harmonic between open sky
and the softness of skin,

  1. Stimulation!

  2. Awesome Paul, a beautiful dream – would that it were possible? You’ve just proven it is.

  3. “art is alive
    it tells us the truth” picasso

  4. I can’t write a wordless comment, but I don’t have any words. This is just so beautiful.

  5. Amazing. I love the line “to write pure instrumental lines”. Such an important question, so musically magical in nature, wanting to write something straight from the heart… It is indeed freeing.

  6. words fail me 🙂 I feel the same way about communication in general – often let down by words and human thought processing, and humans in general I guess.

  7. I have perhaps used the word ‘transcendental’ to describe your poetry before, Paul, but if I haven’t, that is the one word I would always choose to describe it with. It always leaves me with a terrific urge to say something in the comment, something to express my experiencing of it, but I always end up feeling like a little baby boy who has just seen something wondrous but has not the skill of language to express himself, ending up only wording inconsequential little ‘ga-ga’s’ with a big smile on his face,

    tethers which dull the glisten
    of wordless beauty vaulting
    the harmonic between open sky
    and the softness of skin,

    😛

  8. I’m standing up and applauding you, Paul. Phenomenal.

  9. this poem floats free of all tethers… slips like a blade between conscious and unconscious… glistens like whetstone
