Words…

Words wider than wisdom

Wisdom broader than worlds

Worlds higher than waves

Waves whiter than snow

Snow deeper than oceans

Oceans fuller than clouds

Clouds colder than ice

Ice clearer than dreams

Dreams lighter than thoughts

Thoughts broken like splinters

Splinters thornier than roses

Roses silkier than satin

Satin softer than waves

Waves higher than wisdom

Wisdom truer than words

Words rounder than laughter

Laughter sadder than tears

Tears purer than rain…

Just words…
