Words - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

I wrote poems on each insight of the moment:
And then suddenly I realise the joy of being
Alive - for, at any moment
There are so many insights
Impinging on me through just five senses.

Wait a minute....

What ignorance to think that I capture life
In words, - empty, poverty-stricken words!

Life of one individual at even any one moment
Is larger than can be put in million words.

No wonder the sages reach for meditation,
Wordlessness and silence of the depths of Being.
