Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

encouragement (as Jean Reno would say)

encouragement (as Jean Reno would say)


effervescent words

rising reluctantly towards the top

of my half-empty glass


well-intentioned words

insightful truth

meant to uplift, encourage, inspire


honey-dripping words

melodiously falling

on ears deafened by clichéd redundancy


nothing but words

until I actually listen, believe,

and choose to make them my own.
