    dotsWords and the Minddots

    Until they are read
    words are static and mute,
    have no smell,
    provide no tactile stimulation,
    but the brain
    creates sights and sounds to correspond
    to the preserved ideas,
    turns them into emotion,
    makes them ugly or beautiful,
    gives them meaning,
    so if this poem seems senseless.
    Blame it on your mind,
    for words are nothing
    but a waste of ink and space
    without that central processing unit.

      I didn't like this the first time I read it. Now I do quite like it. *Shrug* whaddayaknow. It's nicely done, maybe slightly obvious, but worth saying I think. Becky

      that damn central processing unit, some people don't seem to have one! or theirs is severely limited and fairly useless... i always trip on words and how they got to be what they are to describe what they describe.. i think that made sense! you never waste ink and space with your words, amy!

      If you read something and don't understand it, then it's not the fault of the words you read. That really touches a nopte in me because this same idea was planted in my head earlier today. I think i feel your words being processed by my central unit right now

      Love the irony here, especially towards the end of the text. And I most definitely agree...nothing holds truth in itself, everything is about perception.

      oh this one is a fave...ignorance for not understanding...but very politely said... the psychologist in me agrees with every facinating word and salutes your thought processes.

      I could not have said this better. Yes, words are just words nothing more or less. Made from letters that are even more cryptic unless the brain can sort it all out.

    This is really good. I enjoyed the way you reminded me of this.
