All manner of words are special

Pedro Soler Bueno [CC BY 3.0]

All manner of words are special
Without word of every kind
I’d never met my first friends
Those I found while reading
The only ones I had through childhood and adolescence

All manner of words are special
Without word of every kind
I’d never found the mould of poetry
In which I fit the right words
The ones that express and process my traumas

All manner of words are special
Without word of every kind
I’d never been able to share my passions
Express my true and authentic self
To experience shared compassion between wordsmiths

All manner of words are special

I tried to make a list of word that are special to me and found out that’s the ones that are recurring themes in all my poetry. Which should surprise no one as writing is very self revealing.
Books, beauty, creativity, dance, faith, Goddess, heart, honesty, life, light, love, lust, magic, mind, music, passion, trust, song, soul, sound, strong, writing, words.

So in the end I wrote a poem about why words of every flavor is dear to my heart!


Written for today’s prompt at toads ~ Words To Live By.
