Magical Words - Poem by Rekha Mandagere

Sweet words shower heavenly happiness
Bitter words can only fill our heart, sadness
If Great words inspire you towards boldness
Ungrateful words merely spread soul’s sickness

Oh! My Spirit, why have you made me helpless?
Don’t you repent once watching me speechless?
Have I ever wished your gifts limitless?
Never! I only longed for endless heartfelt words.

If hi, sorry, thanks can make one smile
Do you prefer hiding me from your profile?
Stop not harvesting the garden of life fertile
Always stay with me by your encouraging words!

    I have written a poem in response to your poem 'MAGICAL WORDS' Rekha. It is quite long so I will only briefly quote from it below
    We 'create our world realities, we bless with smiles, radiant with shimmering, life goodwill or we curse; with anger, greed, pride, selfishness, thoughtlessness; choose words to nurture to bless or embrace silences'

    As you bless us with your words Rekha,
    so I will receive your words,
    and respond with blessings of appreciation. Your friend Terence.

    it is not only the presence of words that inspires, admires, believes and decieves but also the absence of words that motivates all emotions. nicely written (Report) Reply

    The impact words have on people is often not reflected by us as we are too preoccupied with ourselves. Thanks for writing this wonderful piece to remind us all of that. I especially like the rhyme in your work. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Fascinating reflection and exhoration, categorizing the words as sweet/bitter, great/ungrateful, encouraging/heartfelt, a plea for healing words and attitudes, with a tinge of accusation, reproving and calling for truth of sorts. Very interesting. A fairly good contemplation. As God's living Word truly says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof; as well as, by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. A very serious reflection. Words are indeed very crucial and so powerful. (Report) Reply

    Do you send this writing 2nd times in PH? If not, I have read this poem here in PH before. May be any other poet composed it before you know not, may be a different change were there, but exactly same in approach and expression. Please review your memory.
