We Call Them “Words”

We Call Them “Words”

© 2012 Kirby Sanders

Lines and curves and dots

Individually meaningless

Joined together

Creating “letters”.

Letters unjumbled

Patterned into equations

Inscribed on stone

Inked on paper

Scattered as electrons.

These symbols

Lift us

Strengthen us

Carry us

Make it possible

For many hearts to beat as one.

What wondrous power there is

In meaningless

Lines and curves and dots.
