World without words

I wonder would we understand
Each other if we didn’t have words
I mean would you comprehend me
Would I really be heard

Without intonations or
Cultural vernacular
Colloquial expressions
Not even coming at cha

Would we know what is meant
Without words being spent

To describe the high
When tides roll by

Like words

  1. When a friend of mine and I would often dialogue about ministry, he would often times share a quote by St. Francis of Assisi that says, “Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary, use words.” This poem is very thought provoking on many levels! Thanks Dorothy!
