Your letters, soft
Like water, rain
With them, 
My soul drifts as a bird 
Like The shadows of trees

words words words

words words words

to give meaning to all

the lies

On my heart, the words
This, my body, the paper
My lips where you pause
Every curve steeped in promise
To be read when you’re in need

Easily understood is,

If Thought

If (all) thoughts are words
To (easily) come by exactly
As internally initiate,
Believe me, no word thinks,
Will go un-remind.

Finnish

If this poem were in
Finnish, the pronouns
would have no gender;

so,

I love it.
Its hair falls and moves.
Its eyes are
opaque
as dust in a glass.


( a poem about love, gender and grammar....)
