Spoken Word

Can you write words
That do not dance
But still have power

That simply hang like thunderclouds
Cumulonimbulus
Full of force and highly charged

But giving no rain

Simply hanging in the sky
Perhaps moved by the wind
Holding in the pain 

Can you write words that flow
Like a river dammed

Holding still and rising
Waiting till the time is just right
To turn the soul’s dynamo

Can you write words that sit silently
Like a seed
In the soil of the heart

Patiently stalking the moment
When maturity gives
Birth to bloom
And shapes the form
Of the flowering soul 

Write them then
These words
That will cause the angels To stand
Silently in awe

These words that will unlock
The gates of hell
And move the demons
To prayer
