WORDS

a poem by Gail P. Kay, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

Words are like music,
Like an artists palette;
Like a gardeners soil;
Like a tool to form
A thing of beauty.
Words are like water,
Life-giving and free
Nourishing, living,
Essential for life
For you and me.
Yet
Words can hurt
Their cruelty can
Destroy.
Just like water.
A raging
Roaring flood
Is natures angry tool
That makes a man
A useless fool.
He can only stand
in awe
Until its power
is no more!

GO GENTLY
LIFE'S JOURNEY
ANGER
JOY
E BOOK
UPON A BARREN ROCK
