“A MATTER OF MEANING”

A MATTER OF MEANING

My wife and I use different screening

Of data and get different meaning…

We disagree

On phraseology,

Where clashes of temperament teeming!

We come from different worlds,

Our brains show differing whorls…

She’s from the mountain–

I’m suburbia counting

The times when she made my heart twirl!

An author used the word “Instinct”

In a way not very succinct…

Seeming suggesting

That we could be resting

On an unsaved soul distinct?

Take the word of “nude”

For many certain facts construed…

Make meaning duller

Applied to color,

The disappointed reactions are rude!
