Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions Speak Louder Than Words Actions versus words Actions speak louder Louder is figurative Louder is expressive Figurative language is effective Figurative does not truly speak Effective is deeply important Effective is walking the talk Important lessons must be demonstrated Important lessons show you don’t tell you Demonstrated lessons are shown like an exhibit Demonstrated lessons than may be emulated Exhibits can be observed Exhibits are seen not heard Observed actions are watched Observed actions trump words Watched love is full of verbs Watched love shows it is an action word Verbs are action words Verbs help one’s mind create mental pictures Words alone are soon forgotten Words are remembered when taught with an action Mental pictures formed in one’s brain Mental pictures are recalled simpler than jargon Brain stores memories Brain loses words Memories are potent tools Memories recall meaning Tools seen in use is vital Tools talked about remain idle Vital is performance Vital is activity Performance is an execution Performance is a rendition Execution creates stimuli Execution shows not tells Stimuli create neuron connections Stimuli causes better recall Connections boost like a catalyst Connections fuel memory Catalyst spark visuals Catalyst evoke images Visual aids are useful to teachers Visual images are appealingly vivid Teachers must display good character Teachers may not just define it Character is taught by example Character in not lexically learned Example set is learned in action ~ Example cannot be set with words For Silent One’s Cliché Contest 3/28/2016

I've never seen a true blitz poem. Jill, wow... I'm impressed. I'm going to look up the form. I'm just curious because my boyfriend wrote a blitz once and it was not even blitz...lol... Anyways, I like the way every line transcends into the next. Our actions are heavy, but I think words are rather powerful. Enjoyed...Linda

Perhaps your boyfriend wrote a true blitz, so now you can laugh out loud at me and not him :)

This for me is so creative, so original, and or course the message so true, ironically these words you wrote for me are actions! not words, and thats a fine art to be able to do that! :) A7
