WORDS

WORDS

A Poem by DIVYA
"

Words on Words. Some senryus :)

"
Saltier than brine
Your words do sting tender skin
Thickening my hide


Clutching at thin straw
Lashing out at rogue currents
Words kept her afloat


Swifter than bullets
Lethal as a hole in head
Kill today with words!

such powerful wordage ... your perspective is on spot and your talent to put them in their place!
words are indeed powerful ... they can con a smart man, words can incite a riot, convey a nasty thought, bring shame and anger, find the truth nd tell lies.
your rein is good

Words can be used to soothe a bleeding soul or be used as weapon to destroy life and relationships. You have said it well.

Thanks for stopping by and such a kind review, dear friend.
Words that falls from our lips can build or break one down. The tongue is an agent that is among the wildest of all beast untamed. What a remarkable out pour. Even a reminder, of how careful we should be with words. The after-math is much powerful.

This is good; three viewpoints more or less playing off each other; one trying to hurt, but also helping; one saving, and one killing. It reminds of Proverbs 12:18.

I know is a well worn adage, but all three marvellous senryus depict it so well...' the pen is mightier than the sword'

Top notch as ever Divya!

I'm thinking the first verse is me.
The second is you thinking.
The third is you fetching the rifle.
