Bamboozled No More! Words

 

Words
Everywhere
In every corner
Like dust
Floating
Dangling in sunlight.

So many words
Making it difficult to decide
Which word will fill
Which space on which page.

Perfection vs Connection
Choosing for self
Or unidentified
Readers/listeners

Or
To choose the words
That will disrupt
Silence and inner
Tranquility?

Because
Quiet as it’s kept
We are interested/obsessed
Collectors

Trying to calculate
The number of words
Needed to stop
Our individual
Passion/obsession

And return to the real mission
Of chasing the words
So we may continue
To pour/splatter these words
Onto more blank pages.
