Words.
The words I read have a voice
My heart can hear.
Presenting a perspective
I may not yet
Have considered.
Words that
Challenge me,
Mold me,
Test me.
Time spent
With each author,
Getting to know
Him or her
Through what
Is shared in print.
Each life
Writer and reader,
Precious,
Intertwined,
Through words on a page.
From one soul to another,
Communicating,
Inaudible,
Yet powerful.
The list is long;
The names are many.
Each one
Participating
In me.
Over a cup of tea,
Or mid-day meal;
Quietly
We meet.
Who I am, in part,
Is whom they
Have helped me become.
From the Bible
And
From those who read it:
Love letters,
Advice,
Encouragement,
To build me up,
To help me be
A child
Reflecting the image of
My Father,
That I may go forth
And love.
Love better,
Because of what I learn
Through anotherís words.

Your title drew me in and so glad, because I really enjoyed this collection of thoughts. Keep up the good words ;)
Pam Carlson-Hetland02/08/08
Me, too. The title caught my eye. But you have presented a perspective of the company we keep in a way I hadn't thought of it before - in what we choose to read. I really liked this! Great job.
Joanne Sher 02/10/08
This flowed SO nicely, and your words are beautiful and thought-provoking and meaningful. Very nicely done.
william price02/10/08
I enjoyed this very much. I identify your message. God bless.
Lyn Churchyard02/10/08
Poetry... yet not.

"To help me be a child reflecting the image of my Father" The ultimate 'known by the company he keeps'.

Surely the desire of all God's children.

Such a different approach - well done!
Jan Ackerson 02/10/08
Wonderful! The words we read are definitely the "company we keep", aren't they? What a creative idea!
Shelley Ledfors 02/10/08
What a great perspective on this topic. Very nice.
Sharlyn Guthrie02/10/08
An interesting perspective...words as company. It's definitely true. Creative!
Patty Wysong02/10/08
I love this take on the topic, and it's so true.
Betty Castleberry02/10/08
Thoughts in poetic form. So creative, and a treasure to read. Very nicely done.
LaNaye Perkins02/10/08
You did an awesome job of beautifully expressing your feelings in this entry. Well done my friend, well done.
Dee Yoder 02/10/08
How many different moments in life have words, written by others, been my most private company? Through good and bad times words have been there; through Faithwriters, even my friends are represented by words on a screen. And what a great reminder to be sure the words we keep company with help us grow to reflect our Father. Simply beautiful, Ann!
Beth LaBuff 02/11/08
Your idea is creative for this wonderfully written poem. I love these thoughts, "Each life Writer and reader, Precious,
Intertwined, Through words on a page. From one soul to another, Communicating, Inaudible," Very nice work on this.
Loren T. Lowery02/11/08
You communicated so, so much in very little words. But what you said speaks volumes about who you are and the sensistive, gentle character within.
Verna Cole Mitchell 02/12/08
I could not help but think of the Hymn "Wonderful Words of Life." You brought your desire to be like Christ to life with your "Words."
Leigh MacKelvey02/12/08
As a "free verse" lover, I'd certainly say this is a poem!
I liked your line breaks and the "words" became the company I kept. Very nice grown-up poem.
Keep at this form of poetry, will you?
Sara Harricharan 02/13/08
Very good here! I liked this and I especially liked the format, you say so much with so little. Great job! ^_^
Maxx .02/13/08
I dabble with free verse from time to time. This is really good. It flowed and still carried the message. Good job!
