Melt the Day

Light a candle

melt the day and let sweet words

seep deep

behind your soul

from lips unread or savored.

Let each syllable

slide into place

make room for breath to sigh

and hope to pause

in anticipation of

some

thing

….. more

…………..than

…….

this,

for whispered at the edge of hearing

just inside warmth and longing

words are what move the world

and make poets entertain wishes

wished for carelessly.
