The Darshan of poetry: flow of the poem.
God said, "Let meaning move, " and there was poetry: --Muriel Rukeyser Come, it says, inside me. Come be me between the lines as well. Come in to the light of language, liquid off the tongue intangibly effulgent. Words flow unbidden through a watchful heart. Quicksilver streams slip heavy, dispersing infinitely dangerously everywhere. Inside a listening mind hear that flowing, rumbling, priceless sound as the deep world talks. It happens inside the words which happen inside the head. You hear the buzz, see the yellow pencil skate across the lines. In that timeless frame nothing else matters. If anything shall come to matter, remember it is only because you heard it inside first.
