Words

Words can be said
in a beautiful way,
that’s how I like
to feel,
when reading
a verse or line.

I ask myself,
how can ordinary
language be exalted
and sublime
without feeling
contrived?

It takes
sensitivity
and time-
to produce a
Motif that
coalesces enough
to set a
poetic
mood.

Similar to
an artist-
who’s always trying
to find the right
light to paint
with.
