words of any kind

against a summer sky’s backdrop
words begin to unite
high above the plain and hills
drowning out winds of sea and sky-
worlds collide like day and night.
no clear cut message-
only empty white noise
still heard in the deep
and all around the world
and we call it poetry.

One thought on “words of any kind

  1. Beautiful…I love how this poem builds until you reveal it as “poetry.” This poem is very vivid and I love the decription- I love the imagery and your use of alliteration gives this poem a melodic wistfullness…” against a summer sky’s backdrop”-beautiful opening line! Great work Carolyn!
