Reena’s Exploration Challenge questions:

  • How do my thoughts get processed into words?
  • Or do my words spur thoughts?
  • How do they interact?

…that threshold moment…
as ‘experiencing’ reluctantly gives way to ‘languaging’
as the raw ‘taking in’ succumbs to ‘thinking of in words’

for me, the daydreamy sensory stage is all too fleeting
so soon my mind turns to describing, delimiting
labeling, likening, that sort of thing

this unwilling, sometimes unwitting transition
can be very frustrating for me
though of course i love words

and words, yes, they can spur wordless thoughts, I think
a progress from expressions into impressions
processes interesting to ponder!
