For Love of Words

For Love of Words

For Love of WordsI do not refuse words
that come to me unbidden,
like the light of distant stars

when seen through bent mirrors,
for those whispered thoughts,
begging to be arrayed upon the page,

remind me what can be
revealed when I consider
the world in a different light.

Inspired by “On Love” by Peter Notehelfer at Gathering Stones Strung on Threads.
