Hello Jake.
I totally agree. Words can lift one up, smooth rough edges,
and add light, hope, and warmth to one's life.
Excellent rhymes and smooth meter make this a very
enjoyable read.
Nicely done.
Best wishes to you.
Robert

I do like that the piece has a bit of a sing-songy nature to it, but I think you could have expanded on your imagery and elaborated with metaphorical references as opposed to literal ones. Regardless, I enjoyed the piece and thought it was a good effort :)

Your wonderful/inspiring poem reminds me of this verse by Emily Dickinson, "A word is dead when it is said some say, I say it just begins to live that day." As always, in simple words you deliver beautiful message in your poetry; thank you for sharing.

Wise words, Jay, that I am certain will resonate with many readers.

The following stanza is particularly moving to me:

:I use my words like paint and brush
and some come slow, some with a rush.
They bring me thoughts of yesteryears,
of loves and hopes, of doubts and fears.

I, too, can go for weeks filled with inspiration, and then I hit a wall.
And if find that I am drawn to yesteryears more often than not...

Thank you for sharing!

Wow! Your poem is so beautiful and you are very talented! I love the way you express yourself and your views on the power of words. The words we use have the power to harm or the power to heal. So, we should choose the words we use wisely. You have expressed this sentiment very well. You paint a lovely picture in one's mind. With each stanza, you address various issues in a person's life, which lead back to your main theme of word choices. This poem evokes many scenario images in the reader's mind. Thank you for sharing your God-given gifts with us.

As always, this is very well written, Jay. Your rhymes are spot on an the meter is perfect, throughout. The thoughts behind it are so well related in the metaphor. Bravo, my friend.

One small suggestion: Perhaps replace the word "rush" with the word "live"

Bless you, my friend. : ) Bob

This is a great presentation. I enjoyed reading it. Your rhymes are great, there's great imagery, and your message is strong. Your notes add even more info to the message. You are right. One's time on Earth is filled with many good and bad 'things.' Reading and writing about how one feels will help their mental stability. Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

Hello Jaybird,
I pray you are doing well. Yes, I am an artist and your words flow on paper as smooth as oil paint. Words can change people's spirit for good or bad. Yes, words can inspire people's hopes. I believe taking a pen in hand and write to lift someone's spirit and hopes. This is a beautiful poem, sir. You are an awesome poet. Words are so powerful and you use them well in your poems. Thank you. Well-done. Happy writing:-)
