TO THE WORDS … THE LOGOS’ DAUGHTERS
(From my fantasia; “THE NIGHT OF READING THE HISTORY”)

O words!
Little daughters
Of thought,
Through your
Shortest syllables
Runs the bloods
Of logic.
How long
Have I been seeing
You as
Living beings
In their own right,
Living entities
That exist, live,
And move,
Refusing ever
To die
On the lips
Of those who are
Forced to remain
Voiceless
Dwelling under
The shadows
Of silence?

O Words!
Your letters
And syllables
Each and every
Speaking creature
Tastes and sips
Then exhales
Whispering, murmuring
Or talking,
Into the vast space
Of our communication
Where ears
Insistently yearn to
Receive, embrace
You all,
As a mother’s
Warm hug.
Hence, knowledge
Is to be incessantly
Born and reborn
Throughout its
Course eternal.

O words!
Here you are,
Hovering and winging
Here above
In that space
Of our awareness,
In the universe
Of Ideas
That spring
Out of myriads
Of heads,
Out of the womb
Of thought
And the bosom of
Human wisdom.

Throughout
Our whole life
We, always,
Either hear you
Undressed of
Any readable
Script
Or, see you
Written,
Unspoken without
Any heard
Voice.

But tonight,
Only tonight,
I feel myself
Invited to
Enjoy watching
Your melodious sound,
A svelte vocal curve,
Flattering, enticing,
Wooing
To get emotionally
Interwoven and
Expressively
Coupling with
Its elegant script,
Its twin avatar

So, the whole scene,
Has just started
To become
Fully visible to me,
With all
Those linguistic elements,
Dressed in colors
Of meanings
And shaped
In graceful traces
Of millions
Of writing hands.
