Words are tools
to form meanings
to be given to readers
or hearers.

Words are a path
by which meanings
may travel from mind
to mind.

Words are animals,
semi-trained, which become
meanings when tongue
or pen releases them,

Words are cogs in
the machinery of language
conveying energy
as meanings.

Words are drugs
whose influence grasps
meanings from
inarticulate sound.


  1. I like poetry too and have had some published, however, none of the poetry on my history blog is my own. Thanks for stopping by.


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
