when I speak smoothly
and bring you
of smiling word bouquets
what I say
is not as important
as what the spaces
when I stammer
Was going to write my favorite line, but ended up rewriting the whole poem. This one got me today 🙂 Very beautiful.
Danny–thank you so much.
like this…it reminds me of when i come in contact with a certain gender…*L*
Ahhh… Yes. That stammer that means… You know…
I know I am in “trouble” so to speak when someone makes me stammer. Does not happen often. 🙂
Oh Susan, you are trailblazing hot this week. Love
Thanks, Boomie! Yeah, don’t know what’s up with it, but am loving it 🙂
Sometimes the stammering can awaken the other party to pay closer attention but, I understand the fear & trembling to speak out.
🙂 not sure if it is so much fear as it is emotions blocking the vocal cords 🙂
the power of the unspoken and the deeply layered syntax of NVCs! well said!
Yes. And thanking you…
I like that space between words, I even like that we don’t even need words to express the deepest part of ourselves. Thanks for this!
You are most welcome.
This is good one.
Thanks, Celestine–it is rare I am at a loss for words 🙂
