Shades of Speech

Say what you mean
mean what you say…

Freedom's Place

The shading of a phrase

Can change the spoken word

The colouring of the quality

Reflects the way its heard.

The truth is often coloured

By the painting of the tongue

The written word as well as thought

As suspect to be hung.

How will we ever know the word

When it’s right or wrong

When one can have a lie it’s said

For the telling of a song.

Our speech is such a little thing

As spoken high or base

The understanding is the thing

For the listening of a race.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
