Words are the Spice of Life


Meditating on this summer day

 how spicy are words in life

do words come from love

or from  strife


Love is expressed

in many simple ways

a hug and a kiss

a compliment  each day


Strife is expressed

in several forms

war, bullying, and harsh words

are the norm


Spicy from gossip

words which cause harm

hot off the press

cause for much alarm


Spicy from encouragement

lifts us up high

lead to loving words

from morning till nigh


Which words in life

set us free

kind and loving words

are the way for me
