There are no words

The more words one uses

The fewer he knows

Because the great muses

Give just one doze.

The secret to writing

Is the reverse of it,

More akin to lightning,

Kept short and sweet.

Silence makes rhymes

Better than sounds

And poets know times

Outside their bounds.

It takes talent really

To learn to stay still,

Words given freely

To the blood of the quill.

What leaves you mute

Should be strived towards –

On creation’s true route

There are no words.
