Power of Words

Weekend Mini-Challenge: Art with Me
We’re writing about words in the Garden  this weekend

Power of Words

 

These words can be super heroes
Throwing you a lifeline
When you are drowning
Talking you down off that ledge

Picking you up when you’re
Too tired to go on –
Or maybe villains
Laughing at your sorrow

Tripping you in the dark
Stalking you when you try to run
They can be a warm companion on a cold day
Curled up beside you

Snuggled under an afghan
Sharing a cup of tea –
Or maybe your worst nightmare
Chasing you through your dreams

Until you scream out loud
These words can bring healing
Like a hug from a friend or
A day in the sunshine

These words have powers
Handle with care

Home Me

Imaginary Garden Weekend Mini-Challenge: Home

Take me home –

Let me sleep in my own bed
Eat at my own table

Take me home
Where I can find peace

In the gentle purring of a cat
And contentment in your arms
