Her Words

Her thoughts 

fell like petals

Softly upon

parchment 

 

Turning Scribbles 

into blossom 

Full of wonder

and enchantment 

 

Her blood became ink

Her heart, a beating scroll

Sonnets were her tears

Weeping from her soul 

 

From her lips, a couplet

A stanza's sweet caress

Inhaling words, exhaling verse

Poetry made flesh!

Lovely, Stephen! Your words had me seeing Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson…and others I’m sure.
