Mother Tongue

Mother tongue
the thought permeates my being

a language shared by all

emotions infuse me
a kaleidoscope of swirling
colors and images
but just outside comprehension
sounds audible
but indistinguishable


to be reconnected

on the brink of something

bold as time
a lost language
ours to claim

    Love that last line. It tells us how even the mysterious is in reach. =)

    I like your comment, Redgladiola! I liked the last line too, such a strong determination to claim this lost language and to have us feel it is entirely possible and within reach.
