Supplement

Astounding – I’m in my fourth decade of life and this is the first day the beauty of this word has hit home…

supple-ment

which put me in mind of Rodin

and of the cacophony of arguments followed by caressing clarifications toward shared understandings

of characters presented and nuanced, developed, made complex

of statements expanded and explained, extended into metaphors

vowels echoing sustained

hard Cs molding into soft

crashes dwindling into static

facts becoming rumors becoming murmurs,  whispers,  sighs

wailing come to  weeping come to tears come to rest

Something that completes or enhances something else when added to it.

One thought on “Supplement

  1. Great folds of rock! A lovely beach of curled words and washed reaches. What is not supplement? ( such a French word made clunky 3:4 , almost an engine jive with a touch of 4:4 ( that gear change between ‘n’ and ‘t’, a secret hidden pause as the mouth adjusts). Mouth music. ( My last internal seance,, to be my next post once an accompanying visual is found, seems a little to echo this shore’s waves – though it was also probably fed by your tantalising quotes…)
