If speaking is just making noise.
If talking is too much about facts.
Conversation is connection.
If real conversation is silence,
a heart to heart communication.
If contemplation is mind expansion,
an underrated pleasure.
beyond the physical dimension.
meditation is soul revelation.
If surviving samsara is our journey.
Remembering nirvana is our destination.
If poetry is a new leaf
emerging from the old self.
Let us talk to each other then,
with poetry, the real conversation.
