Silence Have Mercy

Moses and Language

Language - The Blessings
It is the form of Thought
It is the expression of Feeling
It is the enabler of Discourse
It is the chrysalis of Ideas

Language - The Curse
It is the first step on the slippery slope
to separation from the Breath of Being

Moses brought the people to the Promised Land
but Moses could not be with them in the Promised Land
with its Milk and Honey

Language brought me to the Breath of Being
but language can not be with me in the Breath of Being
with its Silence and Infinity
