The words




The words you whisper to me

in the soft light of spring
as the wind still breathes
in the light of evening

Gets a thousand wings of longing
to fall within me
slowly a feather falls
in the light within you

There's a dream-like quality to the words here that I find very pleasant. Makes me think of how when I read certain writers' words, there's a feeling of being transported away into someone else's soul, so to speak. It's a very special experience to have words make you connect in that manner, and your words had that effect. I enjoy your style, thanks.

The words we use can mean so much

Poetic for sure, and enigmatic too. The final stanza makes me wonder if this is a comparison between the antagonist and another's depth of meaning?

Beautiful, and gentle, and heartfelt.
