the language of description is lost
what you see with your eyes is enough, for you, anyway
but how to get the sense of what you saw across
to another person
through the spirit in your voice
when you say
“it was great!”
in that moment
& it was great
not only that
it was terrific, & interesting too
it was nice
& I had a good time doing it. I had fun.
You should have been there. Not only that, it was beautiful.
It was inspiring.
