Words of Unreason

Day 20 of 28 Days of Unreason

“Words are moving water, muddy, clear, or both” – Jim Harrison


The mudslide made great sense
until muddled questions
left unanswered
drifted
up from the bottom
where you could’ve bought a thought
with a splash
of transparency.

  2. Lynn, this is a tremendous piece ! Reminds me of a zen Buddhist Koan such as ‘the one hand clapping’

    I pondered over this several times before the mud began to clear and I saw it all! That bit of transparency that makes so many things clear in the world of words. This has layers – I love a poem that doesn’t give away its answers but makes me work for them. 🙂

    Exactly! Brilliant take on Harrison. He never gives it away; makes you work for it.
