X. Telepathy - Poem by Igwe Kalu

The air brings this scent
To me, it hits my head.
Your voice has my heart
Flushing, reverberating in resonance.

Hope this air moves
Between us, pray your
Perception be most keen!

I bid thy crossed arms
Open, I feel like
You can hold me.

Do you smell this scent…?

    igwe -

    Beautiful description of the invisible ties that bind us! I wrote a poem about the telepathy of plants, etc. called 'Relativity'. You might enjoy reading it.

    Thanks for this lovely poem - Cheryl

    If we've been fortunate, we've shared the perfumed air... and magic happens. Very nicely done indeed! (Report) Reply

    Non-verbal communucation intrigues me and it seems quite mysterious in that people understand each other without saying a word. This poem is a really good example of that. (Report) Reply

    Communicating from within, no speech necessary, fabulous, I like it very much Igwe.--Melvina-- (Report) Reply

    I find this an unusual, almost sensual use of non-communicative communication... hence the aptness of the title. Well scribed. t x (Report) Reply
