The Webster's English Dictionary contains about 200,000 words. Add all the technical, scientific, medical, derivatives, slang and new words invented each year and you have over 500,000 words to chose from. However, it is estimated that in everyday language, the average person will only use 3000 words.
With such a plethora of words available why do I struggle to find just the one right word. To somehow weave and lace them together to write the perfect poem. The perfect love letter. The perfect words for the Earth Mother. Words that will be timeless, profound and powerful. But more often than naught, my words just seem to unravel into unremarkable emptiness.
Maybe if my words are simple, honest and sincere I will have accomplished my task. Or at times, I may be at my best when I choose to write nothing at all.
