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 You did a good job with your words crystal clear

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: '...flowing...gathering...dissolving...cascading... becoming'

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.....
