The Reader and the Listener

His words on paper are heaven’s gifts to her

In the pages of his books she travels the world

In his characters she finds love and lives free

His passion is transfered from his pen to her heart.

Time stops when he hears her speak

Her spoken words are magic to him

In her words he finds courage and grace, hope and ambition

Her speech to him is like cold water on a hot sunny day.

She reads and he writes

She can’t imagine a greater expression than writing

To arrange words so they speak to hearts

And pen poems so they lift a soul’s burden; is the ultimate.

Her words infuse strength into his body

The words that leave her lips are invitations for him to live again

To hear her is to ignite his reality

Is there an ear more honoured by her voice than his?

Interactions demand we communicate

In this age we write  much more than we speak

Instant messaging and emails have overtaken voice calls

But the voice of a loved one still tickles the heart more than messages.

So, talk and type

Cos’ none should be exclusive of the other

Listen and also read

For the intent of one may be made clearer by the other.


This is to announce the untimely death of Spoken Word A.K.A  Oral Communication. After a long fought battle with mobile messaging apps and email providers, it finally surrendered to eternity. It would be fondly remembered by people of the “older” generation who spent more time with it before the advent of “smarter” ways of communication.   It is survived by non verbal communication as an only child.unnamed (20)

Wisdom nugget; No matter how much time you spend chatting on apps or e-mailing, you never really get to know somebody until you have looked them in the eye and heard them talk. The eyes they say is the window to the soul but the spontaneous words , that had no time to be dipped in honey, are the reflections of the heart. 

Try and have a “phone off” time, maybe 5/10mins a day and spend that time on physical interaction. You will live and function better in life.

Just my thoughts.
