What's in a Word

What's in a word
is it a color a texture
Manchester corduroy or silk
velvet or milk
a sound
is it a feeling or an emotion
of where I am bound
is it hello or goodbye
I'm listening or I cry
I run, I hide or I seek
I turn around to take a peek
What's in a word
is it love and good faith
or is it travelling with
a sports car or a no speed bike
around a honey bee lake
Is it water or is it land
is it Summer forever or
just a stand of trees
a grove where
there is a bird and a squirrel
and leaves that dance
in a November whirl
is it anger or is it shame
or gentle relief from constant pain
is it a necklace or a ring
or someone who can
really sing the Blues
what's in a word
is it I do or I don't
I can't or I won't
I come or I go
is it marriage and divorce
is it a dare or a promise
a saddle or a waterfall source
of a river that will wind and
bend in its downwards course through
the emerald and diamond
valley below where
flowers of the sweetest hue do grow
not far from the ocean
I weep or I sow
a word can give me hope
and trust or lead
to a heady dance of
lust that leaves me
longing for more touch
and scents that make me
dream for so much more
what's in a word
sometimes it's a whole world
and sometimes it's
Just really gone
