Andrew's Words

Now

as long as sounds

ripple into soft air

he’ll speak extravagant hints

because a tang spilling out from

human centre is an unavoidable urge

 

and when I do the calculation on a jotter,

there they figure – 6 million brilliant words

over a span of 18 years,

timbres of aliveness,

gut power

now.

  5. Words... move the "S" to the beginning and it is a sword... who said that the pen is mightier than the sword? Word play is a wonderful joy and your poem is powerful... Thank you for tweeting it to the world! Miigwitch. Namaste. May I share? http:// randomactsofthinking.com/randomposts.html

  6. Just noticed the way the words slowly rise like breath, like an exhalation of expression, of energy. It begins with Now & ends with Now. It has so many possibilities of meaning. A sinuous sort of cycle. Another excellent one. Thanks
