There Are No Words

There Are No Words

(from Brainstorms)

For some things there are no words.

The feeling of hearts connected

Across time and space,

Of knowing what someone is thinking

Even without them saying it,

Of picking up the phone to send a message

To find that love is writing at the same time.

When I think about love

In all its forms,

I wish I could describe

The rush of energy I felt

When I stood underneath the path

Of hundreds of birds

As they migrated up the canyon,

The feeling of wanting to go

Back in for my camera

And knowing that if I turned

My back for a moment

They would be gone.

When I think about

Loss and pain and

Heartache and fear

And tears

And tears

And tears I can’t explain,

There are no words.

To love is to embrace the risk.

To love is to embrace the risk

That one day I will lose love.

One day I will lose love.

There is no question of that.

Children grow.

Loved ones go.

People change.

I am changing every day,

And tomorrow

I will look at love

Through a different lens.

But today I can let myself stand in awe,

Let my body become

Overwhelmed with the feeling

Contained within this magnificent


Of love

For which

There are no words.


This season, may we remember the miracle contained within each moment, the gift given with every breath, and the presence of love in all things.

Until 2023,
