Value words

Words, patiently weighed Reflect some inner spark

of inspiration

About these ads

Waiting to be conveyed

in outer form

to virgin page

or ready ear.

Not overclothed

but wrapped in clarity

translucent, vivid, sheer,

About these ads

so the idea

all fresh and new

comes shining bravely through.

Spare words

the indignity

of being used as

mindless utterance

oblique, confused.

Love words -

Use them with care

Know them

as precious and rare

expressions of the Word

which lies behind all creativity.
