Once upon a time

we stumbled on words


Creation, mutation,

incomplete, never ending


They trip off your tongue

get caught in your throat


Lost in your memory

then, rekindled again.


Words full of colour

and monochrome, too


Words fill your belly

and empty your heart


Words knock you dead

make you feel alive


Raise you to the stars

and back down to earth


Words to a song

make your spirit soar


Words can be holy

and blasphemy, too


Words can be clear

but also misunderstood


A poem’s phrase

makes you feel so raw


The sight of words

The sound of words


The wisdom of words

The naivety of words


The never ending story of words
