Read the Words

Is it just me?

Or do people not stop to read?

A poem, sonnet or book,

Are all worth a patient look.

But with such busy lives,

We become like bees at our hives.

Coming and going, To-ing, and fro-ing.

Somehow we forget to do some growing.

For how much do we miss,

When we bypass readings bliss?

Think back on a tale told,

That, to you, were words of gold.

The stories that touched your heart.

The adventures you became a part.

So when words is all you see,

Please think of this, my plea.

Read them with an opened mind,

Because you’ll never know what you might find.

Enjoyment in a novel so long,

Or inspiration in a sonnet or song.

Encouraged decision from a basic poem,

Or learn wisdom from an old tale known.

So take heed in the words I say,

For, one day, words may show you the way.

Hewn Words

Hewn Words short poem

A black hole detonates itself to stigmatize the substance. Now a silk road leads to sight and touch. A scarecrow starts screaming. Sky was falling on fire. The space becomes deviant. Chopped hands were drawing the tattoos of winged feet.

Wasting Words

Wasting words I want to be electronic; I can only be more robotic. Please try to fix my empathy; I have lost it. I am not hypnotic. I cannot make you feel this, Without giving away my secrets. We need

THE NiGHT OF WORDS an assemblage of thought, Predicted a hint of rain the power of words,from the darkened sky, convey a message for a thought. Was it not one word that launched the words that built the world ?

I learned to hold all my feelings inside until late at night. I covered my mouth with my hands so that no one could hear my tears. I perfected my fake smile. Today, after so many days, painfully enough, but
