Words

google

One word
after another tells
a story with no
ending until the final breath.

Listen to
the stories told.
Fill your heart with
laughter and memories to the
very last moment of your life.

Kim's cool prompt at Poets United's Verse First today is to compose an add-a-word poem, where the first line is two words, and each line has one more word added.

  6. Like the form which builds the expression as one reads it. Stories are the one gift we have to give that may outlast us, and keep on giving,

  7. Sherry,

    I loved your response to the word challenge...

    It reminds me of the story-telling ways of my dear old Irish grandfathers. Both told great tales, which are absent from life these days. Spoken words are so important..

    Best Wednesday wishes Sherry,
    Hope you are in good fettle, as winter reaches its final weeks and spring is nearby:)
    Eileen:)
