WORDS

Words come, words go

All over the place……. like snow

Drifting and swirling,……….. light and airy

No meaning to behold

except when they consolidate ………….like ice.

Now they melt with meaning

gleaning, streaming

Their power solidifies, unifies, testifies to their purpose

And just as we hold them preciously in our hands……………….. they melt

Even to become more precious as they are drawn from the well

to quench our thirsts in the heat of summer

Their true purpose is now revealed

as they sustain our…………. very existence.

So celebrate them……. every day

for without them all would be barren and ………dry

A SIMPLE POEM

Too much to…… see,

too much to…………….. do,

so many people end up with flu.

If time stood……….. still

it would be a thrill

to take a moment to reflect

and not neglect…….. ourselves.

For in there lies our greatest joys,

not toys……….. just silence

and such magnificence.

But back to the race

we must make…….. haste

for time is little and we are old…..er

Mistake,………………………. for I was wrong.
