Hold That Word

April Poetry Month, Day Four. Here comes the poem written to the prompt by Poetic Asides – Hold That [blank]

Poetry Month

Hold that word
you are about to whisper.
Hold the minute
about to slip away.
And then
let’s gather the silent blinks
of our eyelashes
And the timeless smiles
our lips will radiate

Hold that word
We know it now
Leave space breathe
And fill it out with gentleness.
