As writers, we sometimes fear rocking the boat of language. But retained innocence never fears such waters.
To peer into an infant’s eyes
Is to peer into deep fathoms
Revealing a vast everything that was
Flooded by wellspring’s primordia reborn
That place beyond the ebb and tide
Of a fog-shrouded shore
Waits the language of one’s making
Bonded by the unknown
Its sound is mercurial
Its images know little of their genesis
To touch the invitation
Is to be seared and frozen
Its aromatic essence
That of history’s musty pages
Reaching future’s vacuumous yearning
Its taste blends
A thesaurial palate with
Arpeggios outside the key of anything
Flowered fragrances yet to bloom
Time’s serene touch of shadowed space
Such is the idiom of one’s creation
The Berlitz of the mind
Even for those who cannot read

|i love 'The Berlitz of the mind'
even more than i love 'A thesaurial palate'
but this work is as one expects from you, Odin, a great
deal more than the sum of its parts or its persuasive
and original phrasing; how you think! this is splendid..again

|I am working with children right now in art class's and as usually I am learning more from them then they are learning from me. I also work in a grocery store where I get a lot of opportunites to just listen to what they are saying and how they are reacting to their surrundings....and working with young people...each day I am grateful for this as it keeps me young and my mind open to the words...|

|Spacious is the language of the infant and beyond, and even the creation within itself is a language huge of the importance of YOU!|

|T'is, you write with such depth, I surely enjoy reading them Odin. It is a language in itself, one easily read.
I must say this will become a favorite of mine
