How Do You Spell A Letter?

Posted: April 14, 2010 in Uncategorized

How do you spell a letter?
pick one, any one
which alphabet?
Your own, of course

A consonant
sound it out
count the syllables
mark its place

A vowel
just a few
necessary function
complete in its own way

numbers play their part
to create an order
without importance
or prejudice

each can stand up
on its own merit
accepting the resting place
comfortably, effortlessly

always prepared
for an eloquent task
or not
ready none the less

have a place of their own
a sound unique to their shape
a texture open to interpretation

how do you spell a letter?
With another letter
they willingly allow
with no complaint

rearranged from their proud seat
not surprisingly, always available
for our will to be done

    you can spell it this way
    or you can spell it like that
    take poetic license
    and spelling phonetically
    spell me your wonder
    sing me your song
    but just keep spelling your thougths
    all day long
    for my ears to hear 🙂
