A Trail of Words

words float all around us
little words and big words
tossing and turning
touching sometimes
and forming little phrases

no one can see these words
most of the time

but something
anything
can open our eyes
and then we see them
and touch them

and if we’re lucky

we will get hold of one
or two
and mount them
and fly away
dragging a trail of words
in our wake
