Unspoken Words

I often scribble in the sand 
The words I find so hard to say
And hope the wind will come along 
And blow them all your way.

This is good and has the implications of erasing the words and gone to her, so only she would know of them. Good piece of work, short and right to the matter. I have two books on Amazon.com: "One Hundred Sonnets, Book Two," on kindle and "Thirty Religious Sonnets." You like a copy, type the names of the book or my name Luis A. Estable. Please, Pass the Word! I like what you did here. keep writing like this. The best to you now.

I missed reading this little gem Paul. It is beautiful! I hope you are doing well? You have been a bit quiet, but I am assuming you are busy like I am. Blessings, Connie : )

Hi Connie! It's true that I have been busy, but the real culprit is internet...for some days I was unable to access yahoo or google, thus failing to get to my mail, Soup, etc. Very frustrating. Now all of a sudden it is back to normal! ~ Thank you for liking this short poem, one of my earliest on Soup. Unfortunately it has been plagiarized several times:(( Blessings and warm regards // paul

A good motto to have ... when words are understood, then they can be appreciated. When they don't click, then we fail to hear its voice ... though perking one's ears is also a factor to keep in mind.

I clicked on this poem, because it's considered your best, Paul. This really is a very beautiful brevity ... you captured so much feeling and yet wrote it in a very lighthearted (almost nonchalant) way. Words are sometimes hard to vocalize ... but transferring over them by a different carrier alleviates the burden, with the same result. Love your thoughts in this ... and by the looks of it, many others think the same.
