What’s in a word?

11_2008-7-31 IMG_0145

Let the good words roll.

Wisps of wannabe meanings float out

on the breathy winds stirred up

when body meets soul.

Like all good things

they’ve been around, around

since time began, since anyone was

around to make it, mark it and know it.

Without back and forth, was and will be,

what pray tell is to talk about?

Now is just too there, too here,

to bear the portentous gravity

of wordy parceling and prophesying.

What’s in a word? Nothing much.

Only everything worth talking about.

So they say.
