Mistress of Words

‘Mistress of Words’

Tumble down

the way children

roll down grassy hills

laughing.

Tumble out

the way glitter 

shakes onto the page

recklessly.

Tumble through

the pebbles in my head

as laughingly easy

as water over moss.

Wind through me,

words,

of mossy, emerald beauty

and rich color and light.

Grace the page.

Make me your instrument.
