Spoken Word


Just like a broken egg
Word spoken cannot be gathered
It disappears but continually echos
In the heart of the hearers
Spoken word is life frames
We are what we uttered
So, whatever comes your way
Speak like God to it
It will soon fizzle out
And you will be
Like the spoken word, once again.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
