“Poetry is the language of indirection.” Robert Frost
In Japan, the language of indirection would be classified as ‘tatemai,‘ the around-the-bush method of communicating. In other words, read beneath the words. What is NOT being said. Feel the connection in the holes. Dive into subtle.
I think of my blood red beta fish named Adam Blue. If you look carefully, beneath his scales lies brilliant blue.
Thank you, Mr. Frost.
