Letters & Words
To be or not a bee
I see a sea of c’s
I before e except after c
A weird rule to me
Some sum to add an s
But geese and mice don’t end with s
Neighbour and neighbors
Kerosine and kerosene*
Depends where you learn
Practice to practise
License to licence
Colour and Mum
Oh! English is such fun
Thumbs up for lower case b and d
Big D spins from left to right…weee!
p and q are thumbs down
Capital Q turns round
Known to numb
Its’ it’s it is like
Cinnamon and synonym
Twist the tongue
Accept except quiet quite
I know no
Their there they’re
Many more to make aware
So sew it seems seams
Rules consistently broken
Words written or spoken
Perceived meaning only a token
Intention and meaning awoken
Depends how our ears are open
Experience and beliefs masking
The answers to questions we’re asking
Communication with clarity
A sparkling gem of rarity
Echo chamber or original thought
Rationality can not be taught
Hear and read with an open mind
The meaning for YOU, for YOU to find
Based on who you are in that moment of time
Oh! What an infinitely divine and confusing paradigm
I started writing about my helping my daughter practice her reading and writing.
In the process, my mind started connecting a puzzle of thoughts
Rasheed Hooda’s piece on Kerosine and kerosene
A prompt Henery X (long) suggested a little while back about open-mindedness and perspectives.
Spurred on by Sumera Rizwan and our conversation over
ICO’s creation of a new language
My father gifting me an email any containing these multiple meaning beauties… author(s?) unknown.
- I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me.
- I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.
- Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the end.
All merged together and exploded on the page.
Each day my perspective is challenged. Fluid. Flowing. Continuously evaluated with an open mind.
I welcome each and every challenge. They gift me expanded understanding and awareness.
Thank you for reading.
Thank you for being you.
