The Weaver of Words

Nicole, your words on the last post
set me thinking and turned into a poem.

The Weaver of Words

Wind’s voice rattles clouds
Carrying the songs
Of the weaver of words
Fingers coarsened polished
To the point of a needle
Winding dazzling Ls
From skeins of silk
‘Skilfully’ she weaves
From an apes fist
‘Deceit’ from spider tears
Deftly her fingers dance
‘Azure’ ‘cornflower’
Float towards the sky
Catching a thread she joins
Consonants to vowels
Whispers them to the wind
And into the souls of men.

I love to go through earlier posts even if its back dated so much...wanting to know ifI happen to miss a great poem...or a poem that many have missed when you just started your blog..that is why my comments are scattered in one way

Russel, I always think those windy nights sound like the elements arguing.

Gulnaz I can't spell so it doesn't matter, I will be looking out for the rest of your painting, it has a butterfly quality to it
