A Place of Deep Values

A Place of Deep Values

How do you know
that the heart sizzles and the soul shimmers?
I am aware of the curve of the road
And the shape of the trees as I walk and
that my walk creates a path
that leads to the very heart of what matters most.
It is only through deepest invitation
to take the journey further and further
to a place of deep values
where hundreds of birds fly in silence.

    I walk with you Virgilio. Language is not necessary in such a place.
