Nirmala: truth is too simple for words

truth is too simple for words
Nirmala (1950? - )

truth is too simple for words
before thought gets tangled up in nouns and
verbs
there is a wordless sound
a deep breathless sigh
of overwhelming relief
to find the end of fiction
in this ordinary
yet extraordinary moment
when words are recognized
as words
and truth is recognized
as everything else





-- from Gifts With No Giver: A Love Affair With Truth, by Nirmala


Nirmala: truth is too simple for words

Tukaram: Where does one begin with you?

Where does one begin with you?
O Lord, you have no opening line
It's so hard to get you started.

Everything I tried went wrong.
You've used up all my faculties.

What I just said vanished in the sky
And I've fallen on the ground again.

Says Tuka my mind is stunned:
I can't find a word to say.

Tukaram: Where does one begin with you?
