The Call of the Words

Like Jack London’s howling White Fang,
so, too, is the call of words,
words that howl in the resonating chambers
of mind’s memories, senses, pleasures and pains;
the no-memory of no-time, just this, 
that speaks in the lub-dub of blood pulsing,
the inhale, exhale of never being quite sure
if there will be another one.

    Hi Orma!!! Wow, this poem speaks volumes to me. So well written. Haven't written much of anything lately myself, nor have I been here. Always wonderful to hear from you, thanks for your kind congrats. I dont know why they keep featuring me and I don't think its fair to others and I don't even know who else is featured because I am unable to spend time here!!! Anyway...Hope life is good. love & hugs, shar xoxo
