UNLIMITED WORDS

The Writer’s Island, http://writersisland.wordpress.com/, prompt for week of 3/26, is “Unlimited,” while the Cloaked Monk’s, http://cloakedmonk.com/, MarchChallenge prompt for the 29th is “Writing, Erasing, or Some Combo of the Two.”

They both were proving to be challenging. While working back and forth between them, on their own they decided to merge. I hope you like the unexpected result.

UNLIMITED WORDS
by Mike Patrick

Dictionary

Flickr post by Crae's

The ability of the written word
to be twisted, molded and formed
into a sonnet,
a cherished love letter,
or a simple news article,
is unlimited.

There are no constraints
on the combinations
of letters, words, phrases
or sentences one can create.
None.

A scrap of paper
becomes the Gettysburg Address,
a parchment: the Constitution.
Pages blend into books
and a computer becomes
an infinite playground,
waiting for creative fingers
to unveil the magic of words.

So many ideas,
thoughts and inventions
await only a page and words
to spring into being
and live forever . . .
to mold a mind,
to touch a heart,
to form a life.
Unlimited words.

    Mike, a poem that definitely appeals to us wordsmiths. I like all the different types of writing that you mention: sonnet, love letter, and news article. And then you mention two great documents in American history – nicely done.
