Mute words

Will you
still feel
me
without
hearing
the
inflection
of my
voice
as
mute
words
fall flat
across
the
page?

    I like this very much:) A great question – one that I ponder quite frequently.

    • Thank you, Kim! I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend! Are you going out Trick or Treating tomorrow? Do you ever dress up Pee? I’ve never dressed my doggies, but some people do (personally, I think it’s cruel!). To each their own I guess:) Enjoy the festive atmosphere of Autumn!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

        I cannot dress Syd – but I do put things on her head – reindeer antlers, tiger ears, bunny ears, hats, doo rag – I cannot help it – she looks adorable and after almost 8 years, she is finally not fighting the head gear:) Peyton and I are going to dinner for Halloween – a bleated birthday treat for him and the need for a TV with the NFL network:) We have a football game that we must watch:)

    I love the flow of this thought provoking poem!

    • Thank you kindly, Ms. Vee! Isn’t it funny how we subconsciously associate words with feelings? When we were toddlers, the tone of someone’s voice was all the “feeling” we could understand. As we grew up, words were granted life beyond the voice, definition and intrinsic worth added to vocabulary. This poem could mean something or nothing to the reader, depending on their age and conditioning (e.g., personal experiences). I’m sure there are adults who need to hear spoken word to comfort and orient the child within. I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler

      • Check into my blog today. It’s about that very thing! How words on a page devoid if the tone of voice can be do misleading!

      • I just checked your post out & left a comment. Funny how our brains can unknowingly be on the same wavelength. You have a wonderful blog. I look forward to following you, my friend 🙂 Have a great day!
        Cheers,
        Tyler 🙂

      • I know. I was getting my haircut, and on my phone, up comes your blog! My typos were bad (mobile use for WordPress does not work) Isn’t that strange though? We both said the same thing! It must be true, 🙂 Thanks for following me!

        You are very welcome. I did indeed get a lesson that I needed to hear, when I read the poem. You have a great day too Tyler. Be blessed! 🙂

  3. this is great–a real break from the voice I have come to know and love. I like this peek inside you–talking to the great…er…unwashed…:)

    I jest that lat, of course. But more!! Brav-O!!

    That is a good question. I guess the way we hear written words in our heads would depend on things like flow, syntax, and overall context?
