Homeless Words

Sometimes

Words together

Sound good

To the ear

Devoid of meaning

And homeless

In a notebook

They hum

Waiting for your pen

To guide them home

Gene G. McLaughlin 2013

Words Like Thunder

Words resonated more

Before they were written down

Crashing like thunder

Confined to only sound

Now they are echoes

Lost and found

Gene G. McLaughlin 2013

Your Words Are Not Inconsequential

Your words are not inconsequential
Together they are substantial
On the timeline viewed in the sequential
Desire for change rains torrential

Gene G. McLaughlin 2013
