We Name

We name
the unnameable
we describe
the indescribable
we apply attributes
to that which attributes
cannot be applied
so that our minds
can create words
like heart
soul
love
to imagine
who
we
are.

One Day

One day a human
thought
a new idea
that this
was better
than that
and values were born
and how many more days
before
someone uttered
this is good
and
that is bad?

What He Had in Mind

What did he say?
Or words to that effect
that my young mind
pieced together like
pieces to a puzzle
so that when I finally knew
the mystery revealed
my answer was new
it was mine alone
yet he failed to understand
what he said and did
were not exactly
what he had
in mind.
