Word Craft

– Nowaways we communicate a lot by social media, email, facebook, twitter, etc and is easy to jot down a few words in a message – are these words that we would say to peoples faces, is it easy to hide behind a social media mask and make it up or misconstrue what is being said or what we are saying? Do you believe everything you hear or want to believe or disbelieve it? Do you think Social media has changed the way we behave? in the way we communicate with each other?

Word Craft

Words are but potions in the wind

We say them

Twist them

To our own advantage

or is to yours as I speak

am I weak

or strong

it wont take long

til the truth be known

if in your mind disparaging thoughts are sown


we hear them

but do we listen

in our mind they glisten

with hope

with truth

with lies

and ties

and cords are cut

or tied together

if not when and but

a simple word can say it all

it can make you leap or fall

words are misconstrued

and often viewed

at a slant

to accommodate our minds

instead of taking them as true

an email

a message

a tweet

a post

little words in messages

packaged up to say this and that

to change your hat

or be true

its up to you

what you say

as you hide away

behind social media now

it is how we exchange words

and through little birds

that say “I told you so!”

so when you listen to all that chat

about this and that

on social media

do beware

and have a care

for whats not true and what is

dont get in a tis

till the evidence is sought

the truth can but be bought!

I became interested in poetry and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
