The Words - Poem by Maria Shipka

What connects us
with surroundings
are words,
what chills and warms
are words,
what makes delight
or makes sorrow
are words.
The words in the depth
throws down,
settles up on a throne.
The words a shine brings
into the gloomy day.
The words hardly
can smite,
The words can
gently care...
With tears of pain
fulfills eyes,
the tears of joy
in eyes brings..
Therefore, let´s value
the words more,
that day by day
so easy into the air
blithely drop...
The less is
mostly more,
simpleness more is
as the flood
of embellished words.

    Very true Maria, Words are so important. They convey us from the most warm feelings of love to the chilliest feelings of hate and revenge. I think there is a great wisdom in this melodiously written poem. Words spoken, words heard, words read, all can a huge effect on us and on the world. We need so much wisdom before we speak and before we let allow the heard and read words enter our mind and heart.
    Thanks for sharing these wonderful thoughts.
