Pages of words sweep me past myself
and it is not so much the story
although the story is magnificent
in accuracy of telling
the stumbling of humanness.

The words are color
and the sentence a painting
as feelings are tickled
across the senses
glooming and joying
the walking

I am minimized by
the harmony and pitch
that I can only climb
to capture
up the slippery rope
of my own inept glossary.

Hardly an 'inept glossary' my friend! I still don't think there are enough words in the English language though! But the ones there are you use very well - loved this, Martie.

Your glossary seems quite abundant to me! Very well done, Martie! I enjoyed this!
