The Source

parting of lips
position of tongue
quickness of breath
is where words come from

it's not the bold typeface
it's not the plume's script
it's not the stone tablet
where commandments are chipped

a thought and a breath
are divinely combined
rising up to the palate
and by purpose refined

sent out to the world
for our will to be done
our desire to be known
is where words come from

The End
