haiku: language to a writer

 fire_waves_pastel.jpg

****************

Language to a

writer is rare–each word like

cellared, reserved wine.

*******************

The writer plummets 

the river of language for

nugget and gemstone.  

******************** 

Soaring on wings

of ascension, the writer

finds fresh winds and light.

*********************

Words for the writer

brim with scant shades of turning–

essence and nuance.

*********************

Wordsmithing is not

enough: Who can measure the

weight of a comma?

*********************

Knowledge is good and

research better, but the words

unlock truth and light.

*********************

Always measuring,

the writer adds and subtracts

fractions for intrigue.

*********************

The poet extracts

some pertinent lines, to add

shadows and layers.

*********************

The relationship

between writer and reader

is not casual.

*********************

The writer never

forgets the supreme power

of sterling silence.

**********************
