Words Written




Words Written


words written on paper - you forget until later

words written on stones - they mark your bones

words written on brick – a wall is that thick

words written in the air – you have time to spare

words written with water – worth a quarter

words written on earth – a place for your hearth

words written with fire – make them go up higher

words written on a tree – grows for all to see

words written in bronze – you get another chance

words written in silver – feel a little wealthier

words written in gold – forever they will hold

words written in grey – on the way

words written in brown – don’t frown

words written in blood – start from the mud

words written in maroon – don’t give up so soon

words written in red – goes from feet to head

words written in orange – no need to flinch

words written in yellow – a great fellow

words written in sun – having all the fun

words written in lime – for a healing time

words written in green – nature can be seen

words written in sky – far away to fly

words written in blue – sound so true

words written in indigo - everywhere to go

words written in lilac – no place like that

words written in purple – jump that hurdle

words written in pink – laugh at what you think

words written in white – the world is so bright

words written in black – now go all the way back



Written in 2008, published here for the first time.
This piece is included in my book "Moments in Time".
It is now going into print. 
I'm working on getting a e-book version of it done too. 
Planned by the end of the year. If interested, let me know.
