I believe in the power of words
in the power of their touch
their transcendental message
and the question marks it leaves behind.
I believe in the solitude of words
when they hang and linger in our minds
maybe longer than they should
filling the space with doubts
I believe in the magic of words
when said it at the right time
at the right place
to the right one...
I believe in the power of the writer
who hesitates if she has something
worth telling at all...only to realize that
this world has a need for words...
not just any words
Dedicated to my friend MZ who long ago discovered the magic of words, but recently realized the power of becoming a public writer. May all of us do something brave each day.
