Poem: Around Each Other

Around Each Other

I tried to listen
To your language of wisdom,
Wanting me to hear

Yes! Trying and wishing and wanting and yearning represent a circling of emotions.

Lovely haiku posting!

insanely inconclusive

I don't know if I'm understanding you properly, but this reminds me of how difficult it is to communicate with others, even those with whom we are the closest, and whom we consider the wisest.:)

This brings to mind someone who is running around in despair.

Beautiful and bitter-sweet. Lovely.

It is so true, lovely and sad. I love it.

Scott,
Take 2:
This is perfect. I have thought and thought of the right response but realize the only one is the one you can't see, a silent nod of assent. I find it's always wondeful when someone puts into words what I have always felt.

Thanks for this.

Thanx to all, and, Joyce, you nailed it right on the head ... especially if you think you don't get it. Talking around each other; in circles, is what I am portraying.

Oh, and to whoever deleted a comment, if it was an offer to be my benefactor at a rate of, oh, say $100k per year, please re-post! :-)
