i often write as if words

were expensive 


and my assets limited






i have no love of words

i tell stories   some are true   most


are half-truths   i like to write

of friends and lovers


little else matters to me   sometimes

i write of places    shorelines


golden hills of oaks   evenings

on the patio


with colin and his grandfather



i remember specific days 

and write of them   but words   i take


what's at hand   and hope

the reader will make something of them

Honestly, your words are pearls

oh yes! always.
While you have no love for words, i don't trust them either. Its kind of strange, sometimes i feel but then this is what it is.
Also, i like how you place trust in the reader.
Beautiful thought, indeed. As if reading is also safekeeping.
lovely indeed

Well, I for one enjoy reading what you offer. Consistently.
