healing and breaking, making, remaking, destroying in a moment—
once out, forever formed in mind and heart,
dimmed with time—perhaps, but always available for recall,
whether good or bad.
So easy to throw out these innocent syllables, lost to the wind,
They bounce back and back, forever seared
in time and space with power to uplift or with independent life to corrode the broken soul.
Powerful in the mind, more powerful on the tongue.
Like apples of gold in settings of silver
is a word spoken in right circumstances. ~ Proverbs 25:11
