sterling elocution

 

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. 

Like Solomon, who wrote these words, I find soul satisfaction in beautiful speech.  As a writer, I search for delicious words to be framed in serendipitous syntax.  I hope to pick ripe thoughts, artfully arrange them in woven-word baskets and serve a taste of lingual delights.  I admire skilled poets and appreciate how different poetic brushstrokes reveal textured perspectives; unique angles on life’s truth.  Flighty images of the mind settle to roost in solid words. Sentinel ideas on signposts outline silent spaces for contemplation.  Hand-in-hand, we meander world with senses alert to the wild call of hurricane winds or the fresh whisper of gentle breezes, then collectively record richly scripted delicacies for our hungry souls to feast on.

*Proverbs 25:11, BRG

plentiful fruits fall

prepare winter comfort food

preserve summer blush

peelings overflow bucket

promise of spring buds fulfilled

apple harvest ripe

branches bow with weight of fruit

load tub baskets full

haul bounty indoors

latent fragrance of blossoms

smell appley essence

wash, decore, peel, slice

sweeten, simmer, cinnamon
