AMBIGUITY

A glance, a word, a movement
An email, a text, a joke

Volatility lurks at every corner of communication

Could he mean this?
Did she mean that?
Did they want this?
Do they prefer that?

The lines are blurry
The path foggy
The connection spotty

Each unsure what the other means
Yet each afraid of questions that seem -
Stupid, rude, unnecessary

Over the fog some yell
Shouting over and over again
Repeating, repeating, repeating
A hundred words of the same meaning

Then there are some
Walking through a fog
Bumping into each other
Smiling as each recognise
The same uncertainty

Asking "How do you do?"
As the other speaks in Latin
Yet a bond builds

Reading not from the lips
But from the heart

Hearing not from the ears
But from compassion

Seeing not from the eyes
But from understanding

The fog clears
As two hands meet
In mutual greeting

Not of Minds
But of Souls

I am of the connectivity perspective. ❤️

Me too 💕💕

I like how it starts out quite familiar then moves into something deeper more spiritual.. Apart from the ambiguity in the interactions there is the uncertainty of understanding what such a connection truly is.

I feel Rumi said best with his quote:

Someday, on this field, beyond ideas of wrongdoing or rightdoing, we will all meet, in the empty place where Rumi whispers:

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.

Fabulous poem, @kchitrah I wish I would have seen your post earlier.

I loved how it flowed....like an ocean wave....ebb and flow Human disconnection/connection trying to understand it all and yet it all comes down to:

Reading not from the lips
But from the heart

Hearing not from the ears
But from compassion

Seeing not from the eyes
But from understanding

The fog clears
As two hands meet
In mutual greeting

Not of Minds
But of Souls

You're such a fluid and clear poet and I love how you wrap it all up with something deep and meaningful that the reader can walk away with

Really beautiful!
