Syntax Connections

by Ed Higgins

Consider this. Only a sentence ago we were complete strangers, oceans of time, distance and thought between us. Once inside the written word has such beguiling power. Yet, like moon-tide, some sheer magic drew us together into these unfolding words. Their perfect syntax of word on word, sentence upon sentence, whole thoughts connecting between us. As in the chambered nautilus whose spiraled pearlescent luster holds a geometry belonging only there. Likewise, we spiral through words searching some clear new treasure, exploring deep nuanced word-rooms, believing some meaning more than the ocean's dark sound can be found there.
