OctPoWriMo #23 – The Power of Words

All of this has been said before
All will be said again.
There’s nothing new left to say
Between thought and pen

26 letters, mixed together
In idle combinations.
The basis of our language
Rests on slim foundations

But the right word, at the right time
Has a certain magic.
A nudge here, a shift there
And we move from comic to tragic

And even the greatest of words
Still have to be felt in the heart.
So, thank you for this connection.
Thank you for playing your part.

Today’s prompt was thinking about the greatness and smallness of things in comparison to each other, and about how small things fit as pieces to a whole.

      1. I did write a poem. Just couldn’t make it fit with the prompt πŸ˜‰
        I’m working on a second one that was started today as well. Again, nothing to do with the prompt. Maybe it’ll fit tomorrow’s? πŸ˜‰
