365 Creativity Project-Day 174

Journal entry:

Journal 7-1-20120001

The poem today was inspired by The Sunday Whirl. The words supplied are in italics. If you like, visit that site and make something of the words yourself.

Body Language

Snapshots hanging on
Thin walls which barely stand in
Place between us and
Other people who utter
Words through lips hardly moving.

We touch someone’s skin
Our gesture sent in an act
Of sweet compassion
Measured out completely free
Of our premeditation.

Our stories are told
In open eyes, gentle hands,
Bringing emotion
To the surface of our lives,
Spreading it among people.

We are determined
By our interaction with
Everyone we know
Whether lover, family,
Friend, or even hated foe.

Our bodies know truth
Without our mind’s intention
Shouting our meaning
Loudly and clearly before
All the world surrounding us.

      Brenda, thank you. High praise for ramblings. I hope what I share touches some hearts. My creativity project is an ever evolving thing. I never dreamed it would become so involved. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      I am doing a crazy 24 Hour Zine Thing sometime this month, I hope you will visit again and see what becomes of that.

    Love this: “Our bodies know truth

    loved this entry as much as the other entries. It reminds us to cherish life in all of it stages…it is about sacrificing and choices we make.
