Words

by Elvira

Words                         on a page
marks,                         seeming to MEAN something
twist and turn, Eyes to
nerves to brain.

― 2 ―

The process,                           the journey
is FAST
little scratches                        becoming substance,
at least                                    it seems
colored pictures         burn                in grey
turn                 to myriad
Kodak Moments
whatever        is true             depends
on a living nerve:                               and hairs
turning:           red
brown
gold
only to the beholder.

Double, Triple meanings:      you must be
quick
to catch them
otherwise, they          turn     to colorless
verbiage.

And, each one                        sees     a different
star –
Person, Place, or                    Thing.
