Imagining words

 The tower of Babel  came from the  imagination of man
 To reach to the heavens was  the height of his plan
 But God intervened and confused all  their words
 And different languages thusly emerged
 Imagine a song that you once heard
 So soothing the melody so lovely the words
 Words that will live on  through the passage of time
 With meaning and emotion sublime

 Imagine a poem you're about to write
 The words are not yet there 
 But will soon come to light 
 An image of letters in flight 
 If the world was devoid of words
 Someone would soon imagine them
And then  they'd come to be 
 Imagination  is a most  precious gem

 Imagination has no limits, it  is so deemed
Often catching us in our daydreams
Through the mind's eye we try to see
As we imagine things that are yet to be

    Imagination is a conduit whose terminus met with effort is reality. We literally do shape our future with thoughts and words. Thanks for solving this equation.

    You're so right, there seem to be no limits to what man can dream up. I often think of this, in the sense of inventions... how did people have the imagination enough to invent the things which we take for granted today? I am really thankful for language! Love your poem, Joseph, very thought-provoking write.
