THOUGHT FOR THURSDAY - THE TONGUE IS LIKE A TWO-EDGED SWORD

WORDS

Words can cut
Words can heal
Words can wound
Words can kill

Time is short
Time is fast
Life on Earth
doesn't last

So use them wisely -
words and time
work with them -
not just to rhyme.

Come back tomorrow to find out

Wonderful poem! I have no idea what petrologist is, though I can take a few wild guesses.

1.) a person who studies the remains of fossilized pets...:O
2.) a person who works in the petroleum industry and looks for oil fields.

Is it someone who works with petrol?

GG: My feet are not so good at dancing they are more like goo at dancing but words they dance in my head.

Does that mean I'm hearing voices inside my mind?... you may never know MWAAAA-HAAA-HAAA

Now it's back to reality and away I go...to work

I love the poem, Kim! I meant to tell you I read a poem of yours on Miss Rumphius too I think last week, the Love/Loathe one. That was good too!

My guess is someone who studies fossil fuels?

Great poem, Kim.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your mom, too.

Ello - Ellen Oh said...

I love that by the way!

And a petrologist is a petroleum finder right?

Kimbra Kasch said...
