...Words - Poem by Ben Gieske

are like water
..............in a stream

endlessly flowing
..............into meaning

gathering
..............whatever

dissolving elements
...............cascading sentences

until becoming
...............manuscripted documents

    words are drawn from many sources and can change their meanings/What the poet means is not neccessarily what the reader what the reader understands

    I don't know how I missed this one, its got it all: the imagery, the structure and the typography all echo the meaning.I especially like the use of parallel gerunds:

    The audiogram of life has to be fluent with less peaks
    in it. The reasons are for what we use as words can
    even hit back us tomorrow. The peculiarities of words
    has been polished beautifully in this unique poem that
    apperently looks simple but has a hidden meaning in
    it that can only be conceived by one who knows all the
    importance of words and their ethical usage.....a very
    inspirational poem Ben.......an absolute 10..... (Report) Reply
