Speaking’s practice

Days silently pass:
no words said.
He wonders if
speaking’s practice,
now diminished,
will some day
disappear.

Unsaid

Deep into the night we talked,
expending countless words
yet never able to overcome
the shattering silence
of the words left unsaid.

Sticks and stones, but words

Sticks . . .
sharp
pointed
jagged
sticks.

. . . and stones . . .
dull 
ragged
rough 
stones.
. . . but words . . .
rip
wound
destroy.
Sticks . . . 
green
growing
supportive
sticks.
. . . and stones . . . 
smooth
polished
shiny 
stones.
. . . but words . . .
caress
nurture
heal.
