by Michael Becker
Words are the gentlest way to caress and stimulate
the most creative of minds.
Drawing or painting a thing of beauty,
using words as the brush,
the mind as the canvas, is so grand,
As grand as a river rushing to the sea
through a rocky crevice,
past boulders trying to block or impede,
its never ending journey.
Words flowing off the end of one's tongue
can remove the boulders.
Smoothing out the canyon walls,
walls of life, giving inner peace.
Words can make the warm love
that flows through one's soul boil,
turning it to a raging river of passion,
that nothing on this earth can stop.
Words can also turn you cold as ice,
Making you appear as if you were made of stone.
Choose your words carefully.
Trying never to offend,
Words are valuable
and should only be used in the very best intent
anything else would be a waste.
