Words Are Just Birds.


Words are birds nesting in poet trees.


are birds
nesting in poet trees
you can see this in
the leak of ink
from a feather quill
as thoughts take flight
the egg white paper
cracking in many lines
to birth a poem
the art of sharing words
with others, gathering thoughts
and doling them out in groups
that please the eyes and ears....
words to be devoured and
rolled off the tongue.
words to cherish and place
lovingly in a drawer,
words to tantalize one's libido
and bring dampness in nether regions....
words that rhyme and that jangle
and that juxtapose into pictures
that stimulate the mind...
words are the servings spooned
from the brain that feed
the minds of others......
take a bath in words,
feel the heat of them
rise around you as you
carefully assemble them
into a cleansing of the soul....
there are not enough words
to describe the joy of words....
even Helen Keller in her anorexic,
malnourished state of vocabulary
tried constantly to make words
and then share them..much to many's delight
words are but birds
nesting in poet trees
shake a few limbs
and bear fruit
set thoughts
to flight
and watch
