How many words can I throw together
to make nothing?
word-slayer takes on a whole new meaning
as I wield my weapon of choice.
I long to be a word-sleuth (finding truth)
a word-welder (bending thoughts)
a word-barista (brewing love)
a word-buckler (daring to defend hope)
a word-harvester (gathering the lost
a word-sculptor (chiseling connections
between different worlds)
but how many words will I throw together
before nothing becomes something?
A note on inspirations (or lack thereof): My mind lately has been vacant of thoughts and ideas. Not really sure where to begin or end. I suppose part of that is my mood. I have been very caught inside myself and while I often write to purge, I have been looking for more of an escape. Unfortunately, I am having trouble seeing past the whirlwind within. Anyway, in an attempt to unearth something, I flipped through my notebook and found the opening question of this piece written. It seemed fitting so I went with it. It didn't quite take me were I expected, yet I didn't really expect much so...
