Words that Sing Poem Series - Words of a Feather

1st Writes did a study on "words that sing". It takes time and practice to find just the right word to get your point across.

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,
bringing rest,
soft as breast feathers  lining a nest.

Words of rejoicing echo
the heartbeat.
Sharing the fullness of life
lived anew.
Words that sing to the author
of healing:
You heard me and sent me
the words.
