In the peaceful place between words,

There's something to be said

For saying nothing,

For treading water until

The river, passing over smooth stones,

Drops its silty burden,

And becomes clear.

Lao Tzu: "The Tao that can be told of
Is not the eternal Tao;
The Names that can be given
Are not eternal Names.
The Nameless is the origin of heaven and earth..."

The world is truer than our naming of it, in deviant languages.

And so to the power of poetry :).
