The Poem

The words

jump off the page

and tickle me under my chin.

They climb up my unruly hair

past my ears

to the top of my head.

They open the skylights

and jump down

right into my mind.

Once inside

they play games

teasing my thoughts.

Some settle down for a nap


for later consideration.

Yet others continue their expedition

sliding right down my spine

to settle in my heart.

The words, silent now

are clearly visible

through the mist of my tears.

I can finally feel them –

 the corner of my soul

lights up with warmth.

And I know

quietly conceding:

the poem has spoken to me.

In the Sky

I saw her today on my way

an angel, I said to myself, please stay

Up in the sky, somewhat styled

she bent her head down and smiled

I will tell you child, I heard her say

her voice soft with a golden sway

Words have power, you need to know

vibrations will travel in their tow

She told me this, I’m still in awe

then she was gone in a brilliant wave

I saw an angel high in the sky

and she told me the secret, how and why

words can hurt or they can heal

in the eternal vibrational wheel.
