  1. This is the first list poem I've seen you post. I'm sure a shrink could tell us what these particular words mean in your subconscious mind. They are all pretty serious.

  2. Don't forget hugs! They say a lot with no words. I like the poem, though.

  3. Yes, each of these is serious...I started expanding the thought of each, then realized, though words are all we have, sometimes less is more:)

  4. Viv, You inspire another poem:) I thought of it as I lay in bed, that I could contradict this poem on almost every level. I have 3 teenagers:)There is 'the look', 'the sigh', the slam', 'the stomp' and best of all the hugs and the smiles! They say so much with no words at all! H-m-m-m....I wonder what I would do if I came across a grave with nothing but a grin drawn on the marker.
    Thank-you for your thoughts.
