Have you ever thought
What little words can do?
How they can bring a smile
Or make someone feel blue

How they can paint a picture
Beyond our wildest dreams
Or let off all our anger
When in our words we scream

With wafting of aromas
Or billowing white clouds
Or just describing people
That are standing in the crowds

You can scramble them together
Describe the perfect scene
Explain a situation
That to others is not seen

You can bring a stream to life
Describe a rainbow from the fall
Add some words like towering
And describe the trees so tall

Describe a bird that's flying
Or nestled with her young
Or how hard you laughed when
You saw the giraffes tongue

I think they're more than simple
And can be more than complex
Words they are a miracle
That allow our minds to flex


<*\\\><

I know not what the future holds,
but I know Who holds the future.

I don't question YOUR existance - GOD

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us loose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

Very nicely put.  

I wish I could have just one day
When writing would seem like child's-play,
But words keep getting in the way.

LOL Gene, I feel the same way too sometimes.

Sharon as a writer words are our life.

Words they are a miracle..   I like ^_^
one of your rhymes sounds a bit forced("trees so tall"), but I'm completely incompetent writing rhyming poetry, I stick to free verse.. so.. yeah.  
Words are very special things, so it's fitting to pay tribute to them with a poem, especially one like this.
Love,
Lynne
