Happy World Poetry Day 2020 – We need words

21 Comments

We need words…
now more than ever
that bring us together
we need poetry and poets
and story tellers and artists
who weave tales
of hope, love, kindness and resilience
that we as mankind need to remember
during these uncertain and chaotic times
we need words
now more than ever…

  1. Beautiful expression of thoughts

  2. This reminds me of a song by the pop group, Bread – one of my favs back in the day. Anyway the name of the tune was “IF” and here are the lyrics:

    If a picture paints a thousand words
    Then why can’t I paint you?
    The words will never show
    The you I’ve come to know

    If a face could launch a thousand ships
    Then where am I to go?
    There’s no one home but you
    You’re all that’s left me too
    And when my love for life is running dry
    You come and pour yourself on me

    If a man could be two places at one time
    I’d be with you
    Tomorrow and today
    Beside you all the way

    If the world should stop revolving
    Spinning slowly down to die
    I’d spend the end with you
    And when the world was through
    Then one by one the stars would all go out
    Then you and I would simply fly away

  3. Reblogged this on johncoyote and commented:
    Happy world poetry day.

  4. I agree my friend. I hope all is well and be safe.

  5. Agreed. Rise up poets of the world.

  6. Beautiful perspective. Thanks for reminding us Neha. Be safe and well.

  7. Oh, this is wonderful! Good job!

  8. Words can heal but cannot fill the empty stomach
    Words can do promises like leaders do but never fulfill
    Words can calm mind but mind will not work when stomach burns
    Words can be thunderstorm but cannot quench thirst
    Yes, words can become a thread to bind you together
    to live and die together.

    • yet you have expressed so much with words…I still believe words can heal even the most hopeless in their minds…yes it cannot quench thirst but compassionate words are needed today for all…to at least hope for a better tomorrow.
