conversation swirls

delightful sound fills this room

thought and thought entwine

word and word intersperse

fellowship leaps

flits as bird from limb to limb

within sun filled sky

words ebb and flow

thoughts give and take


brilliantly lovely


off to the side

becoming distant from my

attempt at contribution

trying to remove myself

from faster, louder words

squash or steal or sweep aside

a flood of words

strangling my own

before fully grown

push me ever further

into the dark
