Pondering words

If you write a word

in the middle

of a piece of paper

and just leave it there.

All by itself.

A word like, ‘it’ for example.

Left all alone on a page.

With no other words

to butt up against.

After a while ‘it’ loses all meaning.

‘It’ becomes something else.

Colour. Shape. Form.

But then, there are other words.

Words like,




Those words.

Those words when left all alone in the middle of a page.

Still hold such promise.
