Words are like signs on a map, altitude
lines relate to mountains the way love
as a word is nothing like the feeling
in my heart. Woven into language
we connect through words with
people who share our map.
But words tempt us to take
them for the territory, risking loss
of connection with the real
the essential life-giving meaning.
Project 10 is a little experiment.
The number 10 plays a special role in my life. Every month on the 10th day I will start a poem and take a photo (or find another image), which will be posted when ready.
