WORDS, WORDS, and More Words/ https://claudetteellinger.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/waiting-on-words-2



WORDS, WORDS and More Words
Words are the center 
 Of our existence
We need them 
More than we know
Many times a day

We need them to welcome
The rising sun
To greet the loved ones
To state the desired breakfast

Ask for instructions or give them
The newspaper is filled with words
The radio and TV as well
We start the car

Words indicate the gear
And road signs with words
Direct our travel
Words follow us through the day

Dog our every move
Help us to find our way
Allow us to express 
What we saw – think or feel

While some complain
Everything is just “words”
Others continue to seek
The just “right” word
To make communication exact

Books are filled with words
Ideas and thoughts
That expend our own
Words are the magic carpet
We travel on

And last but certainly not least
It is with words we tell those we love
“I love you”
“I miss you”
Such ordinary overused words filled with feeling

The word for April 2, is "words."
