and consonants join
magnetic effect so strong
grips will not loosen
paints a gold sunrise
yet, they have
what it takes
to produce sharp, knife-like pain
be mindful of both

26 thoughts on “Delivery”
This marriage of words
Naked, virgin thoughts run
Hither and thither
Wow! Perfect response, Ben! 🙂
Very kind of you to say so, Lauren. 😳
Loving your shadorma BTW and while what I drew from it has given a birth, a life and a fruit of its own it remains and should remain a genuine comment upon the force of “Delivery”.
In addition within the near proximity of the words “delivery” and “born” I spy the seed of further fruitings though whether you, I or no one at all will be drawn to take that road only time will tell.
Thanks, Ben, and I didn’t think anything of your shadorma other than it was a wonderful comment and addition to mine. In fact, it did inspire me:
the circle of life
new seeds bearing sanguine hues
Round and round
Round and round and round
Round and round
Round and round
And where it ends no one knows
Time … a mystery

(Like Betty I have a second WP site.)
Words have a lot of power and can heal or harm equally well.
Exactly, Binky, and they can slip out faster than we want, which is why we need to be aware of what we’re saying.
WORDS… I totally agree with Binky.. I see them as a Peace Treaty as well as a timing Bomb.
Can destroy and sooth you. ❤
Yes, I agree with you, Maureen, and well said! I was thinking the other day how much they can lift us up, but also how easily they can deflate us. Hence, giving me inspiration for this poem. 🙂 💗
Lauren, so true of words and how we use them. And also that last line – powerful reminder! I enjoyed this double shadorma of yours. 💕
Thanks, Betty, I’m glad you enjoyed this. I was thinking about words lately and how they can heal or hurt, and then became inspired. Have a good day! 💗
Words conjoined can bring forth love, but can also give rise to conflict.
Beware of those who think nought of the effects of words, giving rise to malice of intent.
Precise words you have written, giving rise to many meanings and interpretations.
Thanks for your “words” too, Ian, which tie in perfectly with my shadorma. I always appreciate your insightful thoughts. Cheers back! 🙂
Lauren, I enjoyed this shadorma, so powerful and a reminder of how our words can lift us up or tear us down. Lovely. Love and hugs, my dear friend.
Thanks, Michelle, your encouraging “words” are always appreciated. You’d think that as we get older, words would stop hurting, but that isn’t often the case. Age is but a number…
I’m glad you enjoyed this shadorma – one more to go for November. 🙂 Love and hugs to you, and have a wonderful Wednesday, too. xo
Lauren, this is wonderfully written and also full of truth. Words have a great power and impact on us all…to soothe and comfort, to hurt beyond repair…use wisely indeed!
Thanks for your wonderful thoughts, Annika. It’s amazing how fast words fall out, too, when they should’ve been cemented in. 🙂 Love and hugs to you, my friend…
That was brilliant! 🙂
Words spilled float away
No broom, no brush will clean up
Flints cover footpaths
Sometimes, silence is golden, I reckon 🙂
It sometimes terrifying how much power there is in words, isn’t it? They can let love grow or die, unite or separate, all by merely stringing together consonants and vowels… xoxo
Yes, so much power, and so easily to slip out when they can’t be taken back. Thanks, my friend! Hugs! ❣❣
This is so true Lauren, Words can wound deeper than any knife cut.. I agree.. And thank you for sharing the link back here to your excellent poem.. 🙂 xxx
Thanks for checking it out, Sue. I normally don’t do that anymore on others’ blogs (don’t want to steal their thunder), but it seemed to fit well, so I hope you don’t mind. 🙂 Love and hugs xoxo
I am very Happy you did and never worry about leaving a link.. I have been away so may have missed it, So thankful you shared as it was very relevant.. xx
Okay, thanks again, Sue! Many hugs, my friend..xo
