A Poem by J. Hampton

Searing  my barefeet like 

an exapnse of verbal burning bridge ..

I must cross

so I listen


I close my eyes

and will the tangerine sun beating on my lids

to darken and give me former peace

the golden chalace from which

I once drank your morning smile

to taste the time

that quenched mythirst like

cool water and pastel breeze

longing for the feel of

pure white sheets

and rich black earth

There is an inherent power in "wordage". Unique spellings, meanings, and depictions that change with placement, intent, and phrasings. Each thought's flow has the ability to hold a listener.

Chalace is a unique and provoking name... Chalice is a cup... Wordage is ...a mind's tongue at play.
