THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Words Were Changing” by Miller Oberman: welcome, wanted, waited, swallows, gates, bread, kettle, belly, edges, float, fire, forged
Welcome to a lovely vista
Waiting to be admired
Wanting to be with Linda
Wallowing to be desired
Edges from a narrow path
Enveloping this landscape
Endearing to sheep in the footpath
Everything floats, such an escape
Dancing through the gates
Daring with bells on the belly
Device like fire that translates
Dare to swallow like jelly
And as the kettle boils
A smile was forged
Another day not to spoil
Another soul to merged*
