Silent Pictures

Words …

… are more than
syllables lined up,
… are more than
letters arranged in patterns.

They reveal the shape
the spirit
the attitude
the meaning behind the veil
of shadowy intent.

Words sketch pictures
in your mind …

… kind, loving words

add colour and shape,
… ugly, mean words
erase and blacken.

They change
how you feel
how you think
how you act

They shift
the fabric of your reality
the weave of your thoughts
add shadow
add light
to your day.

Words have power.

Beware.
