Words I Love

Posted: December 1, 2009 in Uncategorized

I read this on Joann’s blog tonight and I loved it and wanted to share:

fog makes me feel more
at ease with my own lack
of clarity
the city commiserates
blanketed in a deep hush
a reprieve from nagging
doubts and fruitless searches
for answers comforted
by the knowledge that nothing
can be solved tonight
I’ll bask in whatever
comfort you afford
I don’t want to see
what light will rob me of
if it’s true
ignorance is bliss
then this grey
fog is rapturous

Isn’t it beautiful and haunting and – truly – amazing what kinds of pictures can be painted with ordinary, everyday, run-of-the-mill words?  Just beautiful.

I’m praying right now about what to do with words in my life.  I want them to matter.  To count.  To heal.  To love.  I really, really do…and I bet you do too.

Verbally yours,
