Sun rays play with shadows
Words play like the sun
At will, they come into light
And play with my all emotions
They leave for me a gift of monologue which
Like a shadow goes after me.

Everywhere I carry them, too
As they ride on the back of my mind
And sing songs with a flute.

Without sound they chime a bell

This reminds me of a little but significant write by Emily Dickinson: A WORD is dead When it is said, Some say. I say it just Begins to live That day... a good idea on the conversation that words do with us, and with the help of which we communicate with the world! ! !

i might be hard pressed to explain ALL of this to someone else....or even myself...but i follow enough of it well enough. and there is some exotic? quality of the poem which draws me in. i enjoyed it and sent it to MyPoemList. i especially enjoyed these five lines: They leave for me a gift of monologue which Like a shadow goes after me. Everywhere I carry them, too As they ride on the back of my mind And sing songs with a flute. thanks for sharing, abdul [or is it wahab? ; the order in which your names are given is different in different places]. :) bri

A beautiful description of the complexity of language. Sean Spencer127 days ago Who doesn't remember English class? Learning about long-dead authors, reading dull novels, griping about the essays we had to write on stories we didn't understand? It's easy to see language arts as something ridiculous, something easy. How hard could it be to rhyme words? As this poem demonstrates, though, a love of language stems from more than stanzas and rhyme schemes. It's the subtle warmth in the knowledge of the fact that we can command and empathize with the emotions of others with the right combination of phrases that, as the poem says, Cling(s) to the heart, and Stick(s) to the mind. It's the ability to truly and freely express ourselves, whether our emotions play like the sun or go hiding/Behind the cloud, that finds a home within us.
