WORDS LIKE THE WALRUS

 

What are words
when they don’t just
wander in weary

What are words
when not wild waffle
but wonders
weaved with wisdom
and written with worth

Words
are like water
washing over the reader
in warm waves

Words
are like wings
raising the receiver
from worrying days

Words
are the world

Words
can be whispers
that wake you

Words
can be ripples
that shake you

Words
are like the welcome wind
on a warm weekend

Words
can be the witness
to all that must walk to its end

Words
can be weapons
in a world waged on war,
weak and enslaved

Words
can be wonderful,
like a walrus
rising over the waves

Words are the world.
