Word Prompt



I canna lie… I struggled with this one.  Thank you, Sammi, for making me struggle week after week! Okay, some weeks more than others 😉


Without Words

There are those who cannot speak the words

To describe the ineffable beauty before them

While the phrases flow beautifully in their mind

The words clog in their throat, or

Tumble out as incoherent gibberish


Oh, but give them pen and paper

And witness the magic they create

By turning mere words into visions

That tickle your imagination

So it is now you, dear reader

Who is left without words
