The words we take to heart are telling.
Some of the best words end in a why.
Words that ask us to look deeper and see the hidden, intricate parts.
Words that hint at promise and potential, holding hope of what could be.
Words of what we feel in common, connecting us in experience and action.
Words that interweave, unifying people or sounds into a beautiful whole.
Words to bless each other from our own gifts, exchanging what nourishes and completes.
Words that engage the imagination
to birth new energy and beauty into the world.
Spacious words that pose questions,
challenge current norms
They offer no easy answers,
rather life in abundance,
wild and expansive,
light shimmering through,
why wouldn’t you try?
But rule words, isims,
Those words hoard
power to a few,
no questions asked.
Clinging to absolutes,
but never be as powerful
as all the beautiful questions.
Why wouldn’t we try asking?
