truth is too simple for words

by Nirmala


Original Language English

truth is too simple for words
before thought gets tangled up in nouns and
verbs
there is a wordless sound
a deep breathless sigh
of overwhelming relief
to find the end of fiction
in this ordinary
yet extraordinary moment
when words are recognized
     as words
and truth is recognized
          as everything else

-- from Gifts With No Giver: A Love Affair With Truth, by Nirmala

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

Should I say something about this poem?

[Words words words. A story. Perhaps a weak attempt at humor. If we're lucky, a spark of insight. And few more words.]

Now that we've gotten the words out of the way, now we can get to "everything else"...
