Truth

My truths are open to interpretation

Not found on faces but through hearts

Literal truths are limited to sharp edges

Eternal truths are fluid and invisible

Suffusing the space behind a smile with radiance

Or coloring imaginations with starlight

My truths are layered and nuanced

Revealed slowly

The way stratified rock gives up its truth

To an archaeologist’s chisel

Telling a story that is never quite as complete

As you’d like but good enough to piece together

    I like this. the images are angular and difficult, but they fit together very neatly.

  2. Riveting poem! Thanks for sharing. I will follow your blog and return to read more, for sure.
