A word is but a silhouette --

A word is but a silhouette --
It says a part but not the whole --
And, too, a shadow -- given name --
Belies description of a soul. 

But words and names are all we have --
And so to use them -- well -- we try --
To spell the temper of a thing --
And tell the sparkle of an eye.

This seems familiar to me David. Maybe from back in my subconscious somewhere? It's simply a grand piece from a skilled "finished carpenter" poet. bri

Many times I have tried to sentence my meanings, feelings but failed. Words can only be stretched so far but emotions is down to how we express them. Nice write.

I fancy the ability to write so philosophically and succinctly.  You are a True poet as my friend Kenneth Smallwood would say.

Iskender Mimaroglu would concur, for he said that words are the building blocks of ideas, that lead to sentences of logic and truth. Good show, Pyro.
