Random words… #Poetry

Random words

I woke up this morning

With an Italian word stuck in my head

The word ‘Clemente’

Meaning merciful.

This happens too often

So I decided to write about it

To see if it would help

Often the words are very strange

So I asked Jaye to look them up

On the computer

There are many times

When the word returns

In some programme we are watching

I wonder what the Universe is trying to tell me

Random words seem to pop into my head

Whenever they feel like it

With no rhyme or reason

That I can understand

If I were to write them down

String them all together

They wouldn’t make a decent sentence

There doesn’t seem to be a reason for it

Maybe I am just nuts

Alternatively, something is trying to fill

The Swiss cheese holes in my head

There must be a lot, for the words keep on coming…

  1. Don’t try and stop them, Anita Let them all in…Surely a miracle – and I’m a doubting Thomas about miracles – how twenty-six simple little letters can be manipulated, massaged, coaxed and ordered into understandable words…Words that can change minds,fortunes,outcomes,the course of history itself; while horrifying, nurturing, comforting, educating and delighting a multitude of people. And doing so much more! No wonder you and I write…xx
