NaPoWriMo - day fourteen

so much speaking

words of life are
words of life

out of your mouth
both blessing and curse

the wounds you intend
and the sweet wound

the ornament of words
promises woven into a cloak

the whisper of memory
the cold hand of regret

the hot flush of shame
soft kiss of forgiveness

the war of attrition
eyes wide open

the subtle gesture
the faint whiff of grace

the sharpened tongue
the intimidating roar

the gift of flowers
a gift of song

you already know the words:
speak to the mountain
