For fun, we asked our writers to write a poem about words. I will share the poems this week. Here is the second one.
Words of a Feather
by Joan Disbrow
Words of prey dive
sinking talons deep into the heart
tearing through softened tissue seeking
the tender part.
Words of compassion bring gifts
of healing that also sink deep
into wounds of ago
restoring the ripped,
soft as breast feathers lining a nest.
Words of rejoicing echo
Sharing the fullness of life
Words that sing to the author
You heard me and sent me
