Haiku: #300-309 (words)

Words have power

wild and undomesticated 

flowers with thorns


With words 

we become as birds

soaring and landing


they float

warships on shores



They grow

as flowers

on our tongue


Wild and untamed

aloud ashamed

or not


as clay unshaped

poets create

as bakers bake


words hurt,

heal and take

breaths away


when we’re gone

they live on



the wind changes

a turrent of our



they grow wings

from the runways

inside our mouth
