I could tell you of the places I'd been,
describe mountains, islands, trees,
and your mind would reconstruct
the trees, the islands and the mountains
that you have seen,
reassembling them
to fit my words.

I could show you photographs
and you would see
a mosaic world of rectangular pieces,
each with its own sky
and carefully chosen border.
You would struggle to work out
how the fragments fit together
and why the same figure seems
to be standing
in so many different places.

Or I could take you there,
let you look and listen,
sharing all and
saying nothing.
