Wittgenstein …

The limits of my language
are the limits of my thought:

I push the barriers
of my mind
wrestling with such words
of Wittgenstein  ..

But are there thoughts
that live
beyond expression ;

are these tethered
by the tongue
but felt inwardly
by everyone?

No words
describe the
mute impression,
Consciousness ..

what is the power,
what is the impulse
that animates
the ‘me’ in me ..
that I cannot formulate?

That man of genius
that man thought odd;
the logician
of philosophy
leads me from a labyrinth
beyond my understanding
to the ineffable –
the silent space of God … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
