'Spoken - Heard'
A word or two may glance from off the tongue
with Thought - or not - directing what is said.
But what is Heard is often not among
the list of true intentions that once lead.
'Intent' and 'Meaning' sometimes rest with 'Sense'.
but 'Understanding' comes so often late
that though the air is filled with noiseful rants
too little of the Truth gets through the gate.
We prattle on, we gush, pontificate...
We smatter-chatter, gossip and we lie.
In every way convey some minor state
of what our Heart has stamped upon its die.
Let all the World's confusion blot what's True...
I will still strive to speak my care of you.
