Poetry – I will knit

I will knit

 

I will knit patterns

Of words,

Stitch letters together,

To capture feelings,

To tell stories,

To set electricity flowing

Through the chemistry

Of neurones.

 

I will glue vowels and consonants

Together

Into symbols,

Symbols for all the intricacies of life,

Symbols of philosophy,

In poetry,

In prose

Encapsulating passion.

 

My symbols will encompass

All experience,

Knowledge

And whimsy

To open up the secrets

Of minds,

Universes

And mystical wondering.

 

For letters, words and language

Are the greatest inventions

And are the real miracles of mind.

 

With them I shall knit a jumper of life.
