Reflections on words

In my last post I offered a sequence of lantern poems inspired by trees near where I live. Here is another sequence of lanterns with ‘words’ as the theme:

Words
linger,
ruffle shame,
attach to doubts,
cling.

Word
bubbles
float away,
Transitory
thoughts.

Words
express,
stretch to touch
hearts that do not
speak.

Words
transform,
motivate,
feeding flames of
hope.


A lantern poem has five lines using the following syllable counts: 1-2-3-4-1.
