WEIGHING UP WORDS
In my hands an anthology
from Wey Poets, all have a
tale to tell, of life and their
own unique experiences in
a collection of words which is
descriptively entitled Pathways.
The group meets at the Quaker
Hall during gatherings at Guildford
– and here fine words get bandied
about in various unique forms and
evolving nuances of ideas. One
of our abler poets is married to
a lady who paints landscapes
of the countryside and which
help us conjure up our thoughts
and take us by the mind into a
grander scheme of things and
nobler plains. I think it proves
the point - each picture saves at
least a thousand words – I heard
It is said at many various times – no
need either to make the merry muses
rhyme or be sublime in what is said
of thoughts that thereby issue forth.
Let the voice of Thalia and her Muses
take creative cruises of your thoughts
and be astonished what mere words
may conjure up inside the inner mind.
Take a walk on the wilder side of life -
but be alone the orator of your work.
