Beyond Words

These words, sanctioned syllables, conveniences.
Maps learned to facilitate meeting,
far different from shifting terrain.
Insignificant, significant – sides of a common coin.
Toss symbolic currency high; cast brilliance ignites
ambient air.
Watch guiding stars dissemble.
Outside Earth’s blanket,
galaxies flash by
in blinks of light.
Vast scope words but clumsily grasp at
from agreed parameters.
Stories, closer approximations we yearn to be told,
await more spacious lexicon.
