I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Word Showers

Words have been showering my mind, recently, and I need to capture a few I wish to look upon from time to time, just because they exist in the form in which they are placed by their authors. Having seen 'My Castle in Spain's' notebooks, what better place could I find in which to collect them? It will be a treasure book of priceless jewels - for who can put a price on a word?

A few of my treasures to behold:

From 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog', a haiku by Kokinshu -

The white pearls
Fallen on my sleeves with my heart still full
We parted
I take them with me
as memory of you

From the poem 'A Litany of contrition by Elizabeth Jennings -

Dew on snowdrop weep for me
Rain in a rose cleanse my heart

From the poem 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost -

The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake

From an Emily Dickinson poem -

"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -

I hope that you enjoy these precious jewels

This is beautiful and very true. No matter what, there's always hope.

This is a lovely post.

Yes, I love those lines of Emily Dickinson.
