Catching sense

Catch sense at two removes from reality
Leap-frogging words to get at your truth.

Two removes stretch to three ,four, more.
As you wind in stair, you think of blue sky

At the top of the stair is scintillating blue
That promises sense in its vast emptiness.

(referring to George Herbert’s poem Jordan(1))
